This review is from: Holt's Pocket Battlefield Guide to Ypres and Passchendaele: 1st Ypres; 2nd Ypres (Gas Attack); 3rd Ypres (Passchendaele): 1st Ypres; 2nd Ypres (Gas ... 3rd Ypres (Passchendaele) 4th Ypres (The Lys) (Paperback)
Good general guide - especially the summary descriptions of the main battles of The Great War. Also good on places to see. Only downside is misleading/out of date information about eating out in Ypres. Contrary to the glowing descriptions in the book, we found it difficult to find a good quality meal in the town. The eateries in the Grote Market are all glorified burger bars selling very expensive and dull food. As for wonderful Belgian 'frites' - prepare yourself for the stodgy oven-cooked variety.
However as regards battlefields and the war - an essential guide book.
