Ypres was the heart of the Commonwealth presence in Belgium for most of the First World War. In October and November 1914, British and French forces stopped the German advance to the Channel on the high ground east of the city, creating a ‘salient’ where Allied lines projected into enemy-held territory so that those defending it were surrounded on three sides. Its defence against a German attack in the spring of 1915 became known as the Second Battle of Ypres.

This spectacular visual chronicle brings together 200 previously unseen panoramic images of World War I, covering the Western Front from end to end and from all years of the war. Taken at huge personal risk by the Royal Engineers for secret intelligence purposes, they reveal what no other photographs can. Each panorama offers a view of up to 160 degrees, so sharply focused that the individual figures of a waiting sniper or a louse-tortured infantryman can be made out. Introduced by historian Richard Holmes, and published in association with London's Imperial War museum, this collection reveals the landscape of World War I as it really was: rural landscapes and villages appear alongside the ruinous muddy wastes that epitomise war-torn France in the modern imagination.
