Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Passchendaele by Nick Lloyd, read by Mark Elstob.
Between July and November 1917, in a small corner of Belgium, more than 500,000 men were killed or maimed, gassed or drowned - and many of the bodies were never found. The Ypres offensive represents the modern impression of the First World War: splintered trees, water-filled craters, muddy shell-holes.
The climax was one of the worst battles of both world wars: Passchendaele. The village fell eventually, only for the whole offensive to be called off. But, as Nick Lloyd shows, notably through previously unexamined German documents, it put the Allies nearer to a major turning point in the war than we have ever imagined.

Passchendaele’s part in history fully researched

This is a great piece of work which comprehensively covers the most gruesome battle of WW1. All the more impressive by being written 100 years after the event.
The narration was clear and appropriate to the subject, although I did wince at his ‘foreign ‘ accents .
