World War I lasted from July 28, 1914, to November 11, 1918. The world was caught up in a global conflict and Europe endured 4 years of horrific fighting. Many battles were fought in and around Ypres including the infamous Battle of Passchendaele.
The landscapes are still marked with mine and artillery craters, trenches, cemeteries and bunkers which remind us of the horrific fighting. Museums exhibit vestiges of a time that should never be forgotten.
This travel guide provides a complete overview of 60 WWI sites within the Ypres Salient. This includes over 100 photos, a detailed map of all military cemeteries, a list of aeroplane aces who dominated the skies, the Messines mine locations and the description of the main offensives.
