4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent book of tours round World War One battlefields., 8 Nov. 2002
This review is from: Battlefields of the First World War: A Traveller's Guide (Hardcover)
The book is written as a series of chapters each on a different campaign. Each chapter describes the campaign and then a tour that takes you round the most important sites and monuments.
I used this book as the only guide for a tour round the Somme, Vimy and Ypres battlefields and it served well. Although it led me round the principle monuments and cemetries, if you want to explore the battles in more detail, you'd need another source.
The maps and directions are adequate but you need a detailed road map of the areas as well.
