The Battle of Passchendaele in 1917, also known as the Third Battle of Ypres or the “Battle of Mud”, was a long, arduous affair fought on the Western Front between July and November for control of the ridges south and east of Belgian city of Ypres.
The human cost was immense, and whilst many different assessments have been made it's likely there were around 500,000 casualties across both sides.
