Two of the most difficult aspects of `Battlefield Tours' are; (A) in seeing a famous battle (Somme, Ypres etc) in a global context and (B) in trying to identify those positions and places which were once the scene of fierce fighting in the light of all the attendant changes brought about by the passing of almost 100 years. All things considered, therefore, a book which shows those battlefield maps - from both perspectives, was long overdue. In addition, the work itself goes much further than one might expect from the title and the reader will soon discover a real treasury of information which covers almost every aspect of WW1 - both at home and abroad.
The `Contents' page commences with an Introduction and ends with an Index of Maps. These being just two of the 100 separate headings with the remainder appearing in chronological order. Far too many to list in a simple review, some examples of the subject matter are (in the order they appear); Religion and Population of Croatia and Slavonia in 1910, Turkey in Europe 1914, German war aims 1914, U-boat positions, the BEF at Mons, the BEF at Aisne, Gallipoli, Defences around London, Vimy Ridge, East Africa, Yugoslavia, Trench Lines, Messines, Ypres, Middle East, German order of battle, German supply and communications systems, Flanders, Successive fronts, Vittorio Veneto, XIV Corps, Royal Engineers 1916 and German Fleet at Scapa Flow 1919.Read more ›
