A close-up analysis of a pivotal battle of World War I revisits the four-year-long Battle of Ypres, an engagement that cost hundreds of thousands of lives, marked the use of terrible new military tactics and technologies--including poison gas, mines, tanks, and air strikes--and forever changed the way that war would be waged. Reprint.
A Storm in Flanders is novelist and prizewinning historian Winston Groom's gripping history of the four-year battle for Ypres in Belgian Flanders, the pivotal engagement of World War I that would forever change the way the world fought--and thought about--war. Groom's account of what would become the most dreaded place on earth is "a moving and oddly inspiring chronicle....A brilliantly written work that is a vital addition to twentieth-century history collections" (Jay Freeman, Booklist). In 1914, Germany launched an invasion of France through neutral Belgium--and brought the wrath of the world upon itself. Ypres became a place of horror, heroism, and terrifying new tactics and technologies: poison gas, tanks, mines, air strikes, and the unspeakable misery of trench warfare. Drawing on the breathtaking drama of politics, strategy, and human heart that, according to the Ft. Worth Morning Star-Telegram, "ought to compete for every writing prize in 2002....[It] is everything nonfiction should be."
