Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

At Passchendaele New Zealand forces lost over 1200 lives in a few hours in October 1917. The soldiers were demoralised almost to the point of no return. They retreated, rested and reinforced. In March 1918 they returned for The Spring Offensive - New Zealand's greatest military victory.

Includes bibliographical references (p. 275-279) and index.
