The "Western Front" was the principal theatre of operations for British and Dominion forces for the duration of the First World War. Though called the "Western Front" by the Allies it was in fact the German western front - their eastern front was in Russia. The narrow war zone of the Western Front ran continuously from the English Channel near Ostend to Belfort on the Swiss border, a distance of 760 kilometres.
