"The British Army arrived to defend Ypres in October 1914 and remained there until the end of the War. The Ypres Salient became synonymous with the Commonwealth soldiers' struggle against the Germans, shells, bullets, wire, gas and mud. 200,000 of them never returned home and now, a century later, lay beneath Flanders Fields.
Dr John Greenacre explains why the British Army stood and fought around Ypres for nearly four year and the ebb and flow of the battles that took place within the Immortal Salient."
