Format: Paperback
Rose Coomb's book is indispensable for anyone interested in touring the French and Belgian WWI battlefields. I visited the battlefields in December of 2002, following the detailed routes from the Michelin maps provided in the book. The descriptions of the events are brief enough that you can read them while at the actual battlefield sites, and they will greatly aid in your reconstruction of your travels when you develop your photos. Make certain that you go to the battlefields to pay homage to our brave and never forgotten Commonwealth soldiers.
"Their bodies are buried in peace, but their name liveth for evermore."

I found that every WW1 site I entered had this book as a "must" on their reading list. After I'd browsed through its pages I had to agree. It's meticulously researched with all the CWG cemeteries described in great detail, neatly put into map sections with all the relevant information for visitors. It's also full of snippets of info about interesting graves eg VC winners, young soldiers, first & last men to die in WW1. For anyone seriously intending to visit several war cemeteries it is an invaluable tool - and a good read to boot. Highly recommended.

Format: Hardcover
It is wonderfull to see that this marvelous work is being kept up to date. It provides both routes and facts about the whole of the western front from the first world war. Originally written twenty five years ago it has now become an historical document in its own right while its revision has made sure that it is relevent to the modern traveller. Unfortunately the author passed away some years ago but she is well remembered and respected and I would recomend that anyone following this guide to the town of Ieper (Ypres) should add to their itinerary a stroll along the Rose Coombes memorial walk on the Ramparts of the town (Starts at the Lille gate).

I bought the original edition of this book in 1981 and over the years I have found it an invaluable reference work. While planning a visit to the Somme / Ypres areas earlier this summer I saw that an updated edition of this book was still on sale, but wondered if it was worth getting. I am glad I decided to go ahead with my purchase. The 100 extra pages contain a wealth of additional information (such as the existence of a British trench section in Auchonviliers) and the book details many of the changes (new monuments, car parking facilities, disappearing relics) that have happened in the 30+ years since I bought the original. I was also pleased to see that the incorrect labelling of the German Front Line on the aerial photograph of Newfoundland Park has been corrected. Anyone still using an early edition of this book will not regret buying the current edition. Anyone else looking for a comprehensive, authoritative guidebook should not hesitate to buy this book.

Format: Paperback
There is hardly anyone who knew the Western front as well as Rose Coombs. This updated version corrects some factual errors, but is worthy of a read since there are many photos and maps of the entire western front 1914-1918. For beginners, this is a must read in order to familiarise yourself with that conflict, "the war to end all wars", so it was said.

I bought this as an upgrade to a much older version. For those people intending to spend a lot of time exploring the battlefields and memorials of World War 1 this is a comprehensive and indispensible source of information.. There is so much to see and do and Rose Coombes has managed to collate much of what is available into excellent tours for the motorist. I wouldn't be without it. Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
This book is suberb, I would class this as the best book anyone could buy when making a visit to the battlefields of WW1. It is packed with information, pictures and maps. This makes for superb reading even if you are not able to make the trip to Belgium or France. The amount of research this must have taken to write must have been vast. Another thing to point out which is worth mentioning is that the book is really tough, I've taken my copy to the western front 3 times now and it has led a hard life in my rucksack when out walking for theday and the spine has never given up any pages and is still fully intact, imagine a book that fell apart in 5 minutes, you wouldn't be able to take it anywhere. Don't think about buying this book, just buy it, you won't be disappointed !!!!!

For anyone travelling to France and Belgium this is a MUST, even if you think you're not a history buff it's such a great guide book , finding all those out of the way places and telling of their history. We have had so many happy fulfilling holidays with Rose beside us.
