Belgium because of geographical location
it was an arena of warfare during both of
World Wars. The evidence of this is numerous
military cemeteries, monuments or encountered in various places, tanks, guns and other military equipment used during war by armies.
Probably the largest concentration of war cemeteries is in the city of Ieper and its surroundings. In these areas, during the First World War, there were four battles about Ieper, in which several hundred thousand soldiers were killed.
In the third battle, called the Battle of Passchendaele (3 July-10 February 1917 year), Germany, seeing the effectiveness of previous tests, sprayed gas. This time it was a mustard gas, which the French soldiers gave the name Iperyt.
The cruelty of this war is reminiscent of military cemeteries scattered around the area, there are 156 here. They are encountered between single family housing estates, sometimes in the middle of nowhere, among maize crops.
