Passchendaele Passion

The British appetite for the First World War in general, and for the Western Front in particular, is insatiable.

This is the great national event, right up there with other people's revolutions, and wars of independence.

They have those, and we have this callous betrayal of the general population by its unthinking and uncaring overlords.

It set in train everything that followed, and it created the country that now exists.

This was our revolution, and it was our war of independence.

We, that general population, will never tire of it.
