Book Description Michael Joseph, London England, 1979. Cloth. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 2nd Impression. Hardback. They Called it Passchendaele. Previous owners name to inside cover. Message to previous owner to inside cover stuck on. In spite of the millionms of words which have been written about Passchendaele - on the politics, the strategy, the controversies which, after sixty years, are still being disputed - the history of what was possibly the worst campaign in the annals of warfare has never been told from the only point of view that really matters. The point of view of the men who fought it. This is the true story of the Tommies, the Canadians and the Anzacs who were gathered, a million strong, in the Ypres Salient in the summer of 1917. Those young men called 'Our Boys' had marched off enthusiastically to do their bit for King, Country and adventure. For many of them the spark of that enthusiasm was snuffed out in the mud of Passchendaele. Perhaps over the years the tragedy has been overemphasised, for the name of that insignificant Flemish village, like the name of Flanders itself, has passed into folk memory as a word which represents the very epitome of horror. But this is not just another tale of blood and thunder, slaughter and privation. it is a story about people who did what they had to do, who went in and out of action, who were brave or terrified, but out of the line (and sometimes in it) lived their youth as best they could, and joked and sang and created their own bawdy entertainment. Set in the context of the five summer and authumn months of 1917, the individual stories blend into a unqiue kaleidoscope of the light and shade, the laughter and endurance which was the human face of the army in the field. Illustrated. 253 pp. (We carry a wide selection of titles in The Arts, Theology, History, Politics, Social and Physical Sciences. academic and scholarly books and Modern First Editions ,and all types of Academic Literature.) Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" Tall Octavo. Hardback. Bookseller Inventory # 092789
