23/10/1914 [Ypres] The Allies counter-attack

The Germans are still trying to smash through the British and take Ypres before sweeping on to the Channel. The British are still holding on. Terrible casualties are being suffered.

But while the British are mainly striving to just hold their ground, their French allies decide that it is time to counter-attack. General Moussy leads his compatriots on a bold attempt to retake the village of Passchendaele. Unfortunately the attack is repulsed with heavy casualties.
