FIVE STARS AS I CAN'T DO WITHOUT THIS ON MY TRAVELS!,
This review is from: Before Endeavours Fade (Paperback)
If there is one reference book that any serious military historian, battlefield guide or family history researcher with an interest in the battlefields of the Great War should buy, then this is it! I bought my first copy of this excellent volume over ten years ago and it has been a constant "companion" on my battlefield tours and at my side during many hours of research too.
This splendid volume includes over thirty different battlefield tour/routes based on the popular Michelin Maps. Every significant British, American and French battlefield, memorial and war cemetery is covered in detail and the whole volume is packed to the hilt with an amazing amount of photographs (including aerial views) which certainly add a whole new perspective to touring.
This is the 12th edition to be published and is much updated and enlarged by an incredible one third to cover sites and memorials not previously included, therefore trust me on this one, this book will provide hours of interesting reading and browsing through the photographs. If you are touring the battlefields it will prove to be invaluable, if you are at home researching your family history, it will save you pounds, however beware, it may well make you want to join the growing group of people who are now dedicated battlefield tourists!

If it's so great - then why does it only merit one star?

I agree with Stephen Foote - very puzzling! JMP

He just high-lighted the stars wrong.

?????? Does this reviewer aim to replace other bad reviews with a review that pretends to be bad????

To be very honest, I have very high opinions of this book and am totally unsure why there is only one star! It should be five as this volume has bee invaluable on my travels! I do object to the comment about one bad review being replaced by another from an earlier responder-it is obviously an error which I will put right now it has been brought to my attention
