The Salient YPRES, 1914--18 : Ypres today is an international "Town of Peace." But in 1914, the town and the Salient, the 35-mile bulge around it on the Western Front, saw a 1,500-day military campaign of mud and blood at the heart of the First World War that turned it into the devil's nursery.

Four years of fighting between the opposing trench-lines made the Salient a grim testing ground of innovative warfare. Alan Palmer traces the impact of poison gas, flamethrowers, tanks, land-mine tunnels and aerial combat. He uses official papers, the press and diaries to analyse clashes of policy and personality among the decision makers while drawing on the tales of the men who sought to carry out their plans.

The Salient provides an illuminating history of Ypres and of the fighting soldier's experience of the flooded fields of Flanders.
