Description

This work is a guide to Europe's major battlefields of the Western Front - Mons, Ypres, Passchendaele, Vimy Ridge and the Somme. It details each historic site and describes the events leading up to the battle, the aims and tactics of the commanders and the action itself. The book then provides directions for a manageable tour of the battlefield, taking in all the significant landmarks and reminders of what took place, from key fortifications and trench lines to scenes of crucial turning-points and outstanding acts of courage. It is both a practical guide for visitors to the battlefields and a response to this harrowing evidence of the "war to end all wars".
