Ypres, Belgium, in 1915, shortly after the First Battle Of Ypres, which occurred in 1914.
There were to be four more Battles Of Ypres before war's end.
Bad as Ypres had been damaged by early 1915, there were no visible city remnants at all by November 1918. Literally everything in Ypres had been obliterated. The city had been shelled into the stone age.
