100th Anniversary of Somme, Messines and Passchendaele

The 100th anniversary of battles at the Somme, Messines and Passchendaele will be acknowledged during 2016 and 2017. Mud Beneath My Boots covers these events in WWI. Although sold out in print form it will be available as an e-book for your Kindle or Apple device in 2015. If you leave an email address I can update you when ready.

There is a lot of interest building in these anniversaries and revisiting through “Mud Beneath My Boots” is a great experience that can be shared and discussed, especially if you are thinking about making the trip to Europe.

There’s lots more to read about “Mud Beneath My Boots” and my other books on this site. Check out the links under the “Books” menu item above.

Remembering a Trip to Passchendaele

Following the publication of “Mud Beneath…” in 2005, Gay and I were invited to Belgium in 2007 to the commemoration of the 90th anniversary of the October events at Passchendaele. I was asked to present copies of the book to the Passchendaele Memorial Museum, and to the Mayor of Zonnebeke at a formal Council function. This coincided with the twinning of Zonnebeke with the Waimakariri District Council, Canterbury.

Gay and I are considering the invitation to return for the 100th anniversary.
