Major and Mrs.Holt's Battlefield Guide to Ypres Salient
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungThis is the most complete guide to the First World War Battlefield of Ypres that has ever been published. Here are concise descriptions of the military elements of the battles woven into a kaleidoscope of human, literary and travel information. There are recommended, timed itineraries representing one day's travelling. Every stop on the route has an accompanying description and often a tale of heroic or tragic action. Memorials large and small, private and official, sites of memorable conflict, the resting places of personalities of note--they are all here and joined together by a sympathetic and understanding commentary that gives the reader a sensitivity towards the events of 1914-1918 that can only be matched by visiting the battlefield itself. This is a guide book written by people who because they have been directly involved in taking tours themselves, know the form and type of information that best serves the visitor to the battlefield.
