Books for the Battlefield Tourist

No other theatre of war is more comprehensively covered by books for the battlefield tourist than the Western Front of the First World War. Virtually every square yard of the bloody, muddy ground that was repeatedly contested during those four tragic years is described in minute detail in Guides written with the footsore tourist specifically in mind. The great battles - Loos, the Somme, Ypres, Cambrai and the climactic battles of 1918, all have books devoted to them. So do lesser actions and small sectors of the bigger battlefields. Now that the Channel Tunnel and fast ferries have brought the Western Front within closer reach than ever, the Naval and Military Press' huge range of Great War Guides are a must-take companion.
