This book builds on the success of The Canadian Battlefields in Northwest Europe, 1944—45 by adding a new chapter dealing with the Canadian battles in Belgium during the First World War. In addition to bringing to life the Victory Campaign of the Second World War in Belgium, Holland, and Germany, it examines the terrible battles fought in the Ypres Salient, including the Canadians’ first battle at 2nd Ypres in April 1915 and the epic battle of Passchendaele in October—November 1917. The Canadian Battlefields in Belgium, Holland, and Germany is lavishly illustrated with photographs and colour maps.
