This third, much revised and retitled edition of John Giles' original Ypres Salient book was specially published by After the Battle to coincide with the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Passchendaele. In it he recreates, by means of contemporary photographs juxtaposed with others taken by him over a number of years (including aerial pictures), plus eyewitness accounts and narrative, the atmosphere, past and present, of that once infamous salient. The end result is a moving tribute to the men who fought with great courage and tenacity in the horrendous conditions that prevailed in Flanders during what was known as the Great War. To them 'Wipers' was more than just a foreign city — it was a way of life and, for so very many, a way of death.
