The First Battle of Ypres (October 30 - November 24, 1914) started the "Race to Sea", where opposing sides tried to outflank each other. The Allied troops were outnumbered and surrounded by the the Germans. They managed to occupy the "Ypres salient", but civilians casualties were common, as the city was shelled daily. When winter came, conditions became too muddy and rainy for any battle to continue and the battle was ended. The picture above shows wounded soldiers at the first Battle of Ypres.
These Photos Of Adolf Hitler After Prison Release Are Unbelievable
These are the private photographs Adolf Hitler didn't want anyone to see. Taken by photographer Heinrich Hoffmann, the extraordinary pictures show Hitler rehearsing while listening to a recording of one of his own speeches. They were reportedly taken in 1925, soon after Hitler was released from a nine-month stint in prison during which he dictated his autobiography, Mein Kampf. After seeing the photographs, Hitler requested that Hoffmann destroy the negatives, but he did not.
Mine craters at St. Eloi
Aerial photograph, St Eloi, near Ypres, Belgium, 27 March 1916. This aerial photograph was taken on 27 March 1916 after the British had exploded six very large mines at the same time, to knock out the German defence before the Allies advanced. The new huge mine craters can be seen looking like four hills in a line up the centre of the photograph.
