a very valuable for the battlefield walker or the armchaie historian . several stories of heroism and futility form the few square miles of belguim which was the salient . this book dwells on the less well known actions and seldomn visited cemeteries ,
Salient Points: Ypres Sector, 1914-18 v.1: Cameos of the Western Front: Ypres Sector, 1914-18 Vol 1 I was drawn to this book after visiting Ypres. I was hoping that there would be a link between people time and place.However I was able to learn little about the soldiers other than their rank and regiment. I shall not bother reading any more books from the series as they are probably just as poorly researched and written. It seems like a good idea to link people with places but to me the best way of reliving history is to read war diaries.
