About the Author
Major and Mrs Holt founded the first organisation to offer battlefield tours to the general public in the late 1970s. Since the 1990s they have been writing their series of guide books, incorporating all that they have learned from their experiences conducting thousands of people around battlefields. This series, designed to serve as companions for travellers, whether sitting at home or physically visiting the battlefields, includes detailed travel directions, military history, fascinating anecdotes and tourist information. The Holts share the writing of their books equally and conduct all their own research, spending many weeks on the ground as they prepare each new book or update previously published titles.

We will be visiting the Somme later this month and will purchase Major and Mrs Holt's guide to that area.
Note that isn't a book to get just before any visit. You need to get it well in advance in order to absorb the amount of information it offers.
Tip - Read it before you go and get planning in advance of the trip! We read it when we were there and found that we missed things because we were rushing and had not planned properly.
So much information about all the places to visit, the Holt's certainly have done their homework.
New things going on for 2014-2018 so will probably need an updated version to keep up with the changes. The Talbot House for instance did not close for lunch!!
