Passchendaele the movie! WW1 battleground.


Recently watched Passchendaele the movie, its made from the point of view of the Canadian soliders that went there. It has some cracking scenes from the trenches and battle but I believe its spoilt by the love story back home that consumes the whole movie! It is better to be a war movie than a love story grr.


Here we see Canadian troops at Passchendaele what can only be described as a mud bath. Taking the injured troops took a real effort across virtually unwalkable paths. In WW1 horses were still used to move heavy artillary, injured about.
