While there are many books covering famous World War I battles (the Somme, Verdun), few seem to exist on Ypres. This book, however, isn't the full treatment that front probably deserves.

The author is a decent writer, but his book feels too thin for such a large subject. It does not seem that he's done extensive research. The German side feels underrepresented. And the larger political context was missing. You can learn more about Ypres from John Keegan's broader overview of the First World World War.

As an introduction, this book is fine. But if you're looking for a masterful discussion of life and death in the trenches at Ypres, look elsewhere.
