The book is extremely well-researched and -written, good value, and the individual walks allow you to "be there". For some of the walks, to see what YOU want to see, you may have to stitch two or more of the walks together. One thing I found lacking which would have been a great advantage, was a map of the entire area, so that you could see the full scale of the battlefield, flashpoints, trench lines etc. and plan your visits. It's difficult to envisage, now that there are so many new roads and buildings, so a map marking landmarks of the time (eg. Hellfire Corner, the Caterpillar, the extent of the Messines Ridge) would be great help. As it stands, I would recommend also buying the CWGC map/pamphlet entitled "Cemeteries & Memorials in Belgium & Northern France", (costs 10 Euro) although that focuses on cemeteries rather than the battlefields.
