The Battle of Passchendaele was undoubtedly one of the most notorious conflicts of the First World War. Hear the story of Harry and Ronald Moorhouse, father and son who were tragically killed on the same day.
From October 1914 to October 1918, the western battlefield of the First World War was located a mile or two from the centre of Ypres. Not surprisingly, 4 years of relentless warfare, left the city in complee ruins.
Just north of Ypres lies one of only 4 German cemeteries in the Flanders Fields area. 4 imposing bronze statues of mourning soldiers watch over the graves of more than 44,000 German soldiers. There are no individual graves.
This nine minute film serves as an orientation to the Great War, the cemetery, and ABMC. Through historic and modern-day imagery, and first-person recollections from letters, a clearer perspective of the true cost of war is presented.
