The Battle of the Menin Road

Frank Hurley took several photographs of the Menin Road battle (September 20th to 25th).  Here you see injured troops on the side of the road.  The Battle of the Menin Road was a tit-for-tat affair starting with a British attack on German positions that led to several effective German counter attacks.  The British casualties during this 5 day period were over 20,000.
