[edit] Information

Released in its entirety for the first time ever, 'The Battle of Ypres' is the original 1925 British Instructional Films documentary re-enacting key scenes from the notorious Battle of Ypres in the actual battle trenches. The lengthy campaign was largely a murderous stalemate that perfectly demonstrated the horror and futility of war. A massive 1.7 million soldiers died in the attempt to capture the Belgian town and its environs over the length of a four year campaign, 1914–1918. The first, second, third and fourth battles of Ypres are all covered as are the key positions of Messines, Hill 60 and the Passchendaele Ridge — the scene of prolonged and terrible carnage over a mere gain of 900 metres of mutilated land. This film includes two extras 'Ypres — The Shell-Shattered City of Flanders' (1918, ~29 minutes) and 'Ypres: Remembrance Day (1922, ~1 min.) which is comprised of original film footage at the end (last 30 minutes) of the feature film.
