Released in its entirety for the first time ever, The Battle Of Ypres is the original 1925 British Instructional Films documentary re-enacting key scenes from the notorious Battle Of Ypres in the actual battle trenches. The lengthy campaign was largely a murderous stalemate that perfectly demonstrated the horror and futility of war. A massive 1.7 million soldiers died in the attempt to capture the Belgian town and its environs over the length of a four year campaign. The first, second, third and fourth battles of Ypres are all covered as are the key positions of Mesen, Hill 60 and the Passchendaele Ridge - the scene of prolonged and terrible carnage over a mere 900 metres of land. A follow-up to the best-selling DVD The Battle Of The Somme (1916), as a representation of war The Battle Of Ypres was not without its controversy; it arguably distorted the grimmer realities of conflict - the trenchfoot, the maiming and death - into a noble recount of the superiority of the Allies. But, even in this light, The Battle Of Ypres gives us a unique historical reading of one of the longest and bloodiest battles of the First World War. The original silent documentary has had an all new soundtrack created from digitally enhanced recordings of the period as well as the addition of evocative sound effects.
