100 jaar Groote Oorlog

What did the Scheldeland look like during the First World War? Few people understand the role this region to the south of the Scheldt played in this war. Battles were fought, and then a siege followed that lasted for years. Little remains from that time; what was destroyed was carefully rebuilt. Naturally, there are visible traces, like the forts around Antwerp. But less visible are the tales of burning cities, of spies and soldiers, of burned bridges..
