Major & Mrs Holt\'s Definitive Battlefield Guide to Ypres Salient & Passchendaele

Fully Updated for 2017

This is the most complete guide to the First World War Battlefield of Ypres that has ever been published. Renowned authors Tonie and Valmai Holt have condensed the knowledge gained from almost a quarter of a century of researching, writing about, visiting and conducting groups around Ypres into this remarkable book. 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, with each itinerary representing one day's travelling. Every stop on the routes 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 toward the events of 1914-1918 that can only be matched by visiting the battlefield itself.
