From the Publisher:

A travellers Guide
Mons, Ypres, Passchendaele, Vimy Ridge, the Somme....The names are no less poignant three quarters of a century on, and the emotional pull of the physical reminders of the First World War is undiminished.

This fascinating book provides detailed accounts of the fifteen most significant battles of the First World War and the events that preceeded them. Aided by maps and quotations, it may be read at home as a continuous guide, dipped into at any time for informartion via the index or simply kept as a reminder of past visits to the sites described.

At each historic site the Holts describe the events leading up to the battle, the aims and tactics of the commanders and the action itself. They then provide detailed 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.

Tonie and Valmai Holt have produced a remarkable book, which is both a practical guide for visitors to the sites as well as a moving and sensitive response to the harrowing evidence of the sadness and sacrifice, the horror and the heroism of "the war to end all wars".
