The Ypres Salient - CWGC

The British Official Historian, Sir James Edmonds, in his later account of 'the great German attempt to breakthrough south-east of Ypres [by Fabeck's Army Group] commencing on 29 October on a front St Yves - Gheluvelt', argued that the complex and deeply interwoven series of actions which subsequently made up the fighting could not, as the Battles Nomenclature Committee's Report attempted, be broken up into three separate battles - Armentières, Messines and Gheluvelt. Edmonds' eventual narrative therefore described simultaneous dependent actions along the entire length of the fighting line.
