On 31st July 1917, the small Belgian village of Passchendaele became the focus for one of the most gruelling, bloody and bizarre battles of World War I. By 6th November, when Passchendaele village and its ridge were captured, over half a million British, French, Canadians, Australians, New Zealanders and Germans had become casualties. Philip Warner's account of the battle to capture Passchendale brings together all the elements of this horrific campaign - the historical background, personal accounts, strategies and tactics, the personalities and political movements. He investigates the issues that had a crucial effect on the course of the battle, including the mutinous state of the French army, and the bombardment that destroyed the drainage system.

This is an older account of this famous, or infamous, battle and acute in its description of this classic ultimate as a quagmire, beyond even Verdun, but more so in its indirect critique, from a military historian, hang the stiff upper lip. Perhaps this is the most horrendous action of them all, in the major league of battles in the wasteland, World War I style. What I find remarkable is the picture of the English numero uno general Haig, known to me from picture book photographs, but not known to me as a general, and a most flawed one, whose tactics betray the core obtuseness of the military tacticians of this era, with a studied indifference or inability to grasp, or even visit to see, the hell they created in abstractions. Even Lloyd George, stuck with him, had become restive at his gallant notions of cavalry charges applied to this inferno of the artillery, where a hundred thousand ended up 'missing', no dog tags for the archaeologists of mud. All that was gained, a few kilometers, was lost, or regained and lost again, and two thirds of the way through I found my normal sense of loyalty yielding to innovations in political philsophy, the 'right' of mutiny, perhaps the right and duty, for indifferent generals in luxurious castles, adding the forces of attack deserve no such battles, til finally, by the end, I was browsing the maps, what route might a deserter take from all this? Of course, as the author notes, this battle was, in a final note of its unforgiving nature, the evidence for much pacifism, even during the coming of the Thirties rearmaments, converging toward another war.

Another revisionist polemics from Warner, who is a Sandhurst lecturer like Gary Sheffield, author of another polemics, Forgotten Victory.

Both authors have axes to grind, and would not hesitate to spin devious half truths and outright lies to prove that the BEF was winning all along, it being the most professional army led by courageous, smart generals like Haig.

With no researches of any kind, the author has managed to draw starling revisionist conclusions that would be farcical if not for all the blood spilled.
