The river formed a part of the front line during the First World War and was the scene of a war of war with trenches, with the Belgian and German armies digging along either side of the river. After the Battle of the Iron in 1914, the Belgian army could hold the rest of the war after invasion of a part of the Iron surface, on the proposal of the Veurse investigator and with the cooperation of Karel Cogge and Hendrik Geeraert. Further inland the allied lines were manned by British and French troops. Like other places in the region, horrific scenes have taken place where each other's statements were taken on time and captured with a high toll to human lives. Along the Iron remind various monuments and sites of war, including the Iron Tower and the Dodengang in Diksmuide.
