    North-east France and the south-west Belgium are known as Flanders. West of a line between Arras and Calais in the north-west are chalk downlands, covered with soil sufficient for arable farming. East of the line, the land declines in a series of spurs into the Flanders plain, bounded by canals linking Douai, Béthune, St Omer and Calais. To the south-east, canals run between Lens, Lille, Roubaix and Courtrai, the Lys river from Courtrai to Ghent and to the north-west lies the sea. The plain i...


    In October, Herbert Kitchener, the British Secretary of State for War, forecast a long war and placed orders for the manufacture of a large number of field, medium and heavy guns and howitzers, sufficient to equip a 24-division army. The order was soon increased by the War Office but the rate of shell manufacture had an immediate effect on operations. While the BEF was still on the Aisne front, ammunition production for field guns and howitzers was 10,000 shells a month and only 100 shells pe...


    The French, Belgian and British forces in Flanders had no organisation for unified command but General Foch had been appointed commandant le groupe des Armées du Nord on 4 October by Joffre.

    Battle of Nonne Bosschen

    The French XVI Corps reached the area from St Eloi to Wytschaete on 1 November, to reinforce the cavalry Corps and the IX Corps attacked further north near Becelaere, which relieved the German pressure on both flanks of I Corps. By 3 November, Armeegruppe Fabeck had lost 17,250 men in five days and of 84 infantry battalions in the BEF which had come to France with about 1,000 officers and men each, 75 had fewer than 300 men, of which 18 battalions were under 100 men strong, despite receiving...


    Both sides had tried to advance after the "open" northern flank had disappeared, the Franco-British towards Lille in October, followed by attacks by the BEF, Belgians and a new French Eighth Army in Belgium. The German 4th and 6th armies took small amounts of ground at great cost to both sides, at the Battle of the Yser (16–31 October) and further south at the Battles of Ypres. Falkenhayn then tried a limited goal of capturing Ypres and Mount Kemmel, from 19 October to 22 November. By 8 Novem...

    Carl-Jan Colpaert was born in Belgium. He attended the American Film Institute, and started his professional career as a film editor for Roger Corman. He founded the production and distribution company Cineville in 1990 with Christoph Henkel.. Colpaert made his directorial debut in 1991 with Delusion, which he co-wrote with Kurt Voss. Three years later he helmed The Crew in an directorial effort that Variety called "misguided". Drowning on Dry Land, a 1999 film that he wrote and directed, drew praise for Barbara Hershey and criticism for a screenplay that made the film "destined for half-inch". His 2004 film The Affair was similarly panned, with Varietycalling it a "homevid-bound indie drama that recalls the most pretentious pseudo-artsy product of the 1960s and '70s". Two years later his film G.I. Jesus, about a Marine returning from the Iraq War, won the Grand Jury Prize at CineVegas. It was reviewed by Matt Zoller Seitz in The New York Timesas "so impressive in so many ways that...
