Tourcaster - Ieper Driving 1 Audio Tour show

Tourcaster - Ieper Driving 1 Audio TourJoin Now to Follow

The Ieper (Ypres) Salient was a constant focus of activity throughout the course of the Great War - "The war to end all wars". When one hears tales of trenches feet deep in water, and of soldiers struggling uphill through muddy quagmires, with enemy fire raining down upon them, Belgian Flanders epitomises the struggle. Here, muddy patches of barren treeless land were fought over, backwards and forwards for 4 years, with hardly any change in the line of the Western Front, but at massive human cost. On these tours you will see what remains even after 90 years; trenches, craters, bunkers and of course cemeteries, which by nature of the decision made not to repatriate the dead, lie silently and peacefully at the then epicentre of the fighting. For anyone who has thought about visiting the Western Front to find out more, or needs to put what they know into perspective, these tours are a rare opportunity to do so and see for yourself, at your own pace. Part 1 of the driving tour visits many iconic sites which names may be familiar such as Hooge, Hellfire Corner, Polygon Wood, Essex Farm (where John McCrae wrote "In Flanders Fields") and of course Passchaendale, but also investigates their history - in some cases little known. This is track one of a multi-track tour, to download the complete tour visit www.tourcaster.com
