The city of Cassel occupies a strategic position on the summit of Mont Cassel (Dutch: Kasselberg),
a prominent hill of Flanders.
Forty kilometres to the east, the city of Ypres in Belgium was at the centre of battle for most of world war 1.
On October 24th, 1914, during the Battle of the Yser, General Ferdinand Foch, who later was to become Marshal Foch (1851-1929) set up his headquarters in Cassel.
General Foch left Cassel in June 1915 and is remembered there by a statue.
