The Field of Passchendaele

thumbnail image

<p>image: a battle scarred Western Front landscape near Passchendaele in Flanders. A large water-filled shell hole dominates the foreground, with two dead soldiers lying nearby on the left. Beyond them is the entrance to a dugout, a small bomb damaged brick structure and numerous bare tree stumps representing the remnants of a small wood. These stumps are echoed in a web of barbed wire on the right, held up by wooden stakes. On the horizon a few beams of sunlight pierce the heavy black cloud, two shells exploding to the right.</p>
