This was filmed in and around the town of Ypres, in Flanders, Belgium. Ypres was the scene of three of the worst battles of the First World War as the allies and Gremans fought for ground and the town of Ypres.
The Poem Narrated is "In Flanders Fields" by John McCrae, a Lieutenant Colonel from the Canadian Army, a surgeon and soldier in the Battle of Ypres.
