Re: Pass­chen­daele: Why we should never for­got the hor­ror and hero­ics of this bloody bat­tle, Christo­pher Sweeney, Nov. 10

Christo­pher Sweeney’s ar­ti­cle on Pass­chen­daele was ex­cel­lent. I wish it could be made manda­tory read­ing for all of our high school stu- dents. I my­self have to ad­mit that I had no knowl­edge of this bat­tle un­til I vis­ited the in­cred­i­ble dis­play at our war mu­seum. Sweeney’s ar­ti­cle helped me to un­der­stand the im­por­tance and sac­ri­fices en­dured by our sol­diers. How can we re­mem­ber this im­por­tant bat­tle when do many have no knowl­edge of it?
