"Their bodies are buried in peace, but their name liveth for evermore."
Yes, there are guides to the individual battlefieds, my particular favourites are the Michelin Guides first published in 1919 when memories were fresh and carnage still evident and now re-published in facsimile format, but this book takes them all in. The maps do not show the plans of the battles and unit movements so a good companion would be Arthur Banks' A Military Atlas Of The First World War, soon to be re-published with topographical detail added to the original maps. Likewise, although monuments and cemeteries appear a more comprehensive companion would be Hurst's The Silent Cities.
A word of caution. This is the 2010 edition and whilst I understand that many of the photographs have been updated and new ones added, the maps are ten years old. I have checked a couple or routes on both Google Earth and Maps and they seem to be OK, but if planning a visit I would also invest in an up to date road atlas.
The strap line for this book is "a guide to the battlefields of the first world war". Before Endeavours Fade is more than a guide book, it is a work of love that should be on the bookshelf of everyone with even just a passing interest in events of a hundred years ago.

Had an earlier edition of this book , all black and white pictures and a bit grainy . This is mostly in colour now and maps are much clearer .
