The Battle of the Yser

The Exiled Belgian Royalist remembers the desperate and heroic days of the Battle of the Yser in October, 1914. To halt the German invasion, the Belgians were forced to flood the local countryside. After the war, when King Albert I was asked about this celebrated victory, he replied modestly: "I did nothing but what I always do- obey the circumstances."
