    Impeccably researched and highly detailed account of the final acts of 3rd Ypres The areas I found particularly of interest were the detail of planning such an assault, the problems of communication with the front line the impact of not knowing where the new front line stood , and the high level of involvement of the GOC 32 Div during the attack and in its immediate aftermath.
