Best Answer

There are 3 battles of Ypres, popularly called Wipers by the British. In 1914 the halting of the German offensive cost over 200,00 casualties. (October & November) In April & May of 1915 poison gas was used for the first time. There were over 100,000 casualties. The third Battle of Ypres (Passchendaele) July to November 1917 had over 200,000 casualties. Detailling the numbers actually killed is very imprecise.
