Description

Ypres Salient The ‘Salient’ is a ridge curling east around Ypres. During the First World War, the Germans had most of the higher grounds of the ‘Ypres Salient’ and so had a significant advantage. The Salient was feared and detested by the British soldiers. No Man’s Land was only a couple of yards wide in some sectors and the rain, mud, trench raids, mining, shelling, … took the weekly casualty rate for the British to 7.000 men during the war. It is in the Salient that Adolf Hitler had his baptism fire. But it was also the theatre for other ‘debuts’; first mines in February 1915, first gas attack in April 1915, first use of flame throwers in July 1916,… Four major battles were fought in the Salient with only a pause in 1916 (cfr. Somme & Verdun). Itinerary On our day tour we visit the John McCrae site at Essex Farm Cemetery, the German cemetery of Langemark, Hill 60, Hooge Crater museum, the crater ‘Pool of Peace’ , Tyne Cot Cemetery at Passchendaele and the museum ‘In Flanders Fields’ or ‘Memorial Museum Passchendaele 1917’.
