The Ghosts of Passchendaelle - Fiction but based on fact.

This book by Frederick Petford, covers the post war period and the great debate about not bringing the fallen home for private family burial.

The rich - officer class - were also shocked that all headstones would be the same, regardless of rank.

We take it all for granted now but at the time there was a great outcry.

There is a bit a romance and a murder thrown in to keep the story going and a bit of the supernatural too.

All in all a good, thought provoking read and the visits to the old battlefields and early graveyards are also covered.
