2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By C. Buckland on 25 Aug. 2010
Format: Paperback
This book is primarily concerned with the French offensives of May and September 1915 in which they suffered appalling casualties. It takes you through such places as Notre Dame de Lorette (now the French National Memorial), Carency, Souchez, Ablain St Nazaire, Vimy and, of course, Arras itself. The British part in the overall plan (Joffre's) was at Aubers Ridge in May and Loos in September; both are outside the scope of this book. The British Arras offensive of April/May 1917 is briefly described. There are numerous, splendid photos of the battlefields before, during and just after the war. There are many familiar places, hard to recognize as they are today; nevertheless this is an evocative record and one full of interest to today's pilgrims.

This is not a review of this particular book, it is a review of the whole series of the re-published, faithfull, facsimilies of the Illustrated Michelin Guides To The Battle-Fields (1914 1918). There are many guides to the WW1 battle fields (the Holt's, After The Battle, Battleground Europe) but these guides are top of the list because they were written in 1919, when memories were fresh and the carnage still evident, as can be seen in some of the photographs..

Produced by the Michelin tyre company "In MemoryOf The Michelin Workmen And Employees Who Died Gloriously For There Country", each volume covers a major campaign/battle. There are descriptions of the area covered before, during and after the war, all well illustrated with maps of the battles and unit movements, panoramas of the battlefields and before and after black and white photographs. There are also contemporary maps of tour itineraries to the locations/actions described. One idiosyncrasy, the contents page is atthe back of the guide!

For many years I have owned several original first editions given to me by my late father's employer who was an officer in the Royal Horse Artillery during WW1 and re-visited some of the battlefields at the time of The King's Pilgrimage. Now, thanks to Naval & Military Press I have been able to fill the gaps in my collection. Although originally dating from 1919, these excellen guides are as much a part of the conflct as the places and events they describe.
