It was said that you could smell the battlefield miles before you reached it -- a fetid odor of death. It was where the poppies grew in Flanders Fields while a million men lived like animals in slimy underground trenches and from 1914 to 1918 slaughtered one another with such consistency that even on "quiet days" casualties ran into the thousands. "A Storm in Flanders" is prize-winning historian Winston Groom's compelling history of the four-year battle for Ypres. Clean. Bookseller Inventory # 005486
