‘1917, Total War in Flanders’ – Exhibition Guynemer-Pavilion

Exhibition
Poelkapelle

The Guynemer Pavilion (currently under construction) houses a two-part exhibition, which tells the story of the role of military aviation in the war and the French participation in the Battle of Passendale. The part played by the French Army in this largely Anglo-Saxon offensive was crucially important. Although that Army was in a state of crisis in 1917, it was still able to make a cautious but significant advance towards Houthulst Forest. Increasing use of military aviation was also made throughout 1917, evolving from a purely observational role to become an integral part of the war machine. More info: www.flandersfields.be/en/1917
