More About the Author

Tonie Holt is the 'Major' of Major and Mrs Holt who are well known as the authors of the leading guide books to the battlefields of the First and Second World Wars.
Both he and Valmai(the 'Mrs') began writing at their schools. Their first published works were for local newspapers and then for commercial radio.
They founded the company Major and Mrs Holt's Battlefield Tours in the early 1970s at which time it was the first and only company running such tours for the general public eventually covering wars as far afield as Viet Nam, the Crimea, South Africa, El Alamein, the American Civil War and of course the battles of both the First and Second World Wars.
In the 1980s they were asked to take over running the Pilgrimage programme for the Royal British Legion which they completely upgraded and then handed back to the Legion when the British Government re-instated the financial support for relatives to visit the graves of loved ones.
Having sold the company in the 1990s Tonie and Valmai began writing the series of guide books which is now accepted as the leader amongst such publications. Unlike many authors they do not have a team of researchers but do all their own research by travelling all the routes they recommend, visiting all the memorials and cemeteries and taking all the photographs.

Format: Paperback
Being an owner of the Holt's Battlefield guide to the Ieper (Yper) Salient I must say that I was shocked by the long wait for other guides at Amazon.co.uk as these are very good and popular guide books.
Anyway about the book, having worked on the War graves of the Ieper Salient for some years I often saw both first time visitors and hardened enthusiasts using this guide. Having obtained a copy myself I was pleasantly surprised to find that it contained facts and insights into the area and its history that had not come to my attention, even after some years living here. It also provides clear guide routes for new comers to the area, pointing out the main points of interest along the way.
To sum up this guide is the best available, that I have read, for the first time visitor to the Ieper Salient and remains a usefull reference guide to those gathering more knowledge later on.
