    One thought on “Flanders Then and Now: The Ypres Salient and Passchendaele”

    1. The history in this book is clear and well-presented with complementary eyewitness accounts, but what makes this book outstanding is the collection of photographs showing what places were like during the War and how they were at the time of writing (the late 1980s). It is an excellent combination of history and guide book.
