Description


Face the horror of poison gas at Ypres and endure the hellish sea of mud at Passchendaele alongside courageous Canadian soldiers.

From the opening movements of the First World War, most of Belgium was occupied by German forces. Fighting in Flanders explores how Canadians in Belgium had to adapt to the significant challenges - from the first use of poison gas in the Second Battle of Ypres to the hellish mud of Passchendaele.

This souvenir catalogue highlights the famous poem In Flanders Fields by John McCrae and examines how Canadian and Belgian collective memories of this conflict have evolved over the last 100 years.
