'The Battle of Nonne Bosschen 11th November 1914' with Vern Littley
18 Jun

The battle of Nonne Bosschen was part of the wider first battle of Ypres and was the final German attempt to break through the British lines around Ypres. It was mounted by twelve and a half divisions from two army groups (Fabeck’s and Linsingen’s), under the overall command of Crown Prince Rupprecht and involved an attack against a nine mile front, stretching from Messines to Reutel close to Polygon Wood. Vern Littley takes up the story.
