Passchendaele, The Third Battle of Ypres

31 July 2017 marks 100 years since the start of the Third Battle of Ypres, also known as Passchendaele. By the end of the Offensive on 10 November 1917, the Allied forces had sustained over 320,000 casualties, and had gained just five miles of the Ypres Salient.

The centenary is an opportunity for people in the UK to come together to remember those, on both sides, who lost their lives at Passchendaele and reflect upon the impact of the First World War.

The First World War Centenary Partnership, led by Imperial War Museums (IWM), is presenting a series of exhibitions, events and artworks from July to November this year to commemorate the centenary of the Third Battle of Ypres.
