The Third Battle of Ypres, also known as the Battle of Passchendaele, was a campaign of the First World War, fought by the Allies against Germany. The total casualties in this engagement numbered approximately half a million, many of whom drowned in the mud.
Siegfried Sassoon, the war poet, wrote:
I died in hell – (They called it Passchendaele).
My wound was slight,
And I was hobbling back; and then a shell
Burst slick upon the duckboards: so I fell
Into the bottomless mud, and lost the light
