Another Footnote in History. (9th October 1917–Passchendaele)

August 14, 2010

I attempted to post something this afternoon on this subject but it went, as they say, a little pear-shaped. A little reflection has led me to believe that it was unlikely to be of any interest to anyone other than myself, though, frankly, this is not a consideration that weighs heavily with me most of the time. If you have any curiosity at all about it I suggest you look at C.E.W. Bean’s ‘Official History of Australia in the War of 1914-1918’  Vol. IV. The Australian Imperial Force in France 1917. (11th ed. 1941),  Chapter XXI The Plan Breaks Down –  Passchendaele 1 – Oct 9th.

There are many footnotes in this chapter (and of course all the other chapters). Almost any one will do.
