Abstract

Les Flandres belges constituent la partie la plus à l’ouest et la plus au nord du front occidental qui se déployait sur environ 700 km de la mer du Nord à la frontière suisse. Cette étendue très plate avait déjà été le lieu de combats pendant des siècles et l’installation des premières lignes du front au cœur de celle-ci prit une valeur emblématique. À partir de la fin de 1914, les Flandres devinrent le siège d’une série de batailles qui devaient largement influencer la conduite de la guerre à l’ouest. C’est là qu’à l’issue de la « course à la mer » – au cours de laquelle les ennemis ont tenté de se déborder mutuellement pour réussir une percée – que la guerre des tranchées a fini par s’imposer. Les armées françaises, belges et de l’Empire britannique – que devaient rejoindre plus tard les armées américaines et portugaises – y affrontèrent les armées allemandes.
