The presentation will be live and online.
The Third Battle of Ypres was officially terminated by Field Marshal Sir Douglas Haig with the opening of the Battle of Cambrai on 20 November 1917. Nevertheless, a comparatively unknown set-piece attack (the only large-scale night operation carried out on the Flanders front during the campaign) was launched twelve days later on 2 December. Dr Michael LoCicero, author of 'A Moonlight Massacre: The Forgotten Last Act of the Third Battle of Ypres, 2 December 1917', will deliver an on-line lecture about this opaque episode of the Great War as part of the WFA’s Webinar series of programmes.
