The Great War – 100 Years, Part Three: Battles

The cataclysmic events of The Great War 1914-1918 involved a diverse range of nations and more combatants than any war before or since, of which over 37 million became casualties. Many of the war’s key battles, fought from the fields and towns of Northern France and Belgium to the deserts of the Middle East and the wild expanse of the North Sea, have become synonymous with the massive and futile loss of life.

The set of six stamps and a Miniature Sheet illustrates battles that have become landmarks of history’s most devastating conflict.
