Nick Lloyd: Passchendaele - 100 years on

Freitag, 28. Juli 2017

For 100 years, the Third Battle of Ypres - more commonly known as "Passchendaele" - has epitomised for many the horror and futility of the First World War. The popular perception is of a battle fought knee-deep in mud and water, with British and Commonwealth troops sacrificed by stubborn commanders for useless gains.

Dr Lloyd will discuss another side to the campaign, the little-known middle phase of the fighting between 20 September and 4 October 1917, when a series of major offensives brought the German Army to the brink of defeat.

Dr Nick Lloyd is a Senior Lecturer in the Defence Studies Department at King's College London.
