This current book follows the same format as its Somme partner in placing German eyewitness accounts in the correct battle context at Passchendaele as part of the Third Battle of Ypres. It is a masterpiece of research and gives breadth to the German side of the story thus far restricted to the few English translations of such authors as Junger. Indeed the temptation to regurgitate the well known accounts has been suppressed in favour of lesser known sources and it is the better for it. So those seeking Junger at Langemarck will find plenty of supporting sources and evidence from others with 73rd HF and also from adjoining regiments of the 111th Division (76th HF and 164th ). That is the genius of Sheldon's work; the sheer depth of research and corroboration that leaves you confident that these sources are reliable. The bibliography of over one hundred published German books plus further unpublished sources confirms this. This book is without doubt the highlight of 2007 and an absolute necessity for any serious researcher on Third Ypres.
