Click on each name on this interactive map to find out more about what happened at that location.

For the New Zealand Division, part of II Anzac Corps, major operations in Belgium began in June 1917 with the successful but costly capture of Messines ridge.

The battle for Passchendaele reached a climax in early October when a successful assault on Gravenstafel Spur on the 4th was followed by a devastating defeat at Bellevue Spur on the 12th.

Even then, the misery was not over – in December, at nearby Polderhoek, the New Zealanders suffered another costly setback.
