Book Description

6 Jun 2002 Battleground Europe
In September 1915 Kitcherner's men were in action for the first time in the largest offensive of the year. Using gas, British troops managed to open a three mile gap in the German line. However, misuse of the reserves allowed the chance of success to pass by. In the following struggle for Hohenzollern Redboubt, the British were defeated time after time by superior weapons and tactics. For the first time visitors will be able to explore this key battle, a battle that cost the BEF over 50,000 casualties.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best books for touring Loos battlefield 21 Jun 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
For those who have toured the battlefields of the Ypres Salient and the Somme, and wants a different large-scale WW1 battle to visit and get their teeth into, the Battle of Loos is a good choice. Remarkably little has changed in the 98 years since what was at the time Britain's largest battle ever. It is still flat, dotted with nineteenth century slag heaps but mostly farmland.

I have just returned from five days of battlefield touring with my brother, which included two days walking the Loos battlefield where our grandfather fought in 1915. Andrew Rawson's two books in the Battlefield Europe series (this for the northern half of the battlefield, and the other, Hill 70, which covers the southern half) were indispensable to us in understanding this complex battle. Rawson divides the battlefield up into sectors, each a minor battle in itself, gives a detailed description of what happened and supplies detailed walks that enable the reader to understand each phase of the battle, and in particular suggests good places to park (very useful since these are not always that obvious on some very fast roads), and paths that give the best views and access to various features, without trampling on farmers crops or causing a nuisance to others.

A section at the end on the local war cemeteries is particularly useful allowing one to find which cemetery relates to the dead of which phase of the battle, and where to find famous graves such as V.C. winners etc..

For anyone touring this battlefield, or with a serious interest in the Battle of Loos, this book and its companion are indispensable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loos 9 Dec 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Yes, very good book and most helpful about the battle in which a relation (by marriage) was killed. We needed to find out more as we are visiting the battlefields in 2014

3.0 out of 5 stars Too much too soon. 13 May 2013
By R. REED
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The writer clearly has a great knowledge of the sbject but the information comes thick and fast and is not the most reader friendly. Perhaps better for the reader with some prior knowledge.
