Belgian battle scene

George Edmund Butler's painting Zonnebeke (completed about 1918) captures the devastated Belgian landscape in the aftermath of the great battles of 1917. Zonnebeke is just to the south-west of Passchendaele, where the New Zealanders fought in October 1917, and just north of Polderhoek, where they saw action two months later.
