On September the 28th, the final offensive started that ended World War I. That day, the Belgian army, under the command of King Albert I, together with the French and British, attacked the Germans on the ridge near Ypres. After heavy fighting, the Belgian Carabiniers and Grenadiers are able to take the ruins of the village of Passchendaele. After this, the offensive continues towards Moorslede and Roeselare.
