Walking Ypres

The medieval city of Ypres will forever be associated with the Great War, especially by the British. From 1914 to 1918 it was the key strongpoint in the northern sector of the Western Front, and the epic story of its defence has taken on almost legendary status. The city and the surrounding battlefields are also among the most visited sites on the Western Front, and Paul Reed's walking guide is an essential travelling companion for anyone who is eager to explore them. His classic book, first published over ten years ago, is the result of a lifetime's research into the battles for Ypres and the Flemish landscape over which they were fought. For this second edition, which he has revised, updated and expanded, he has provided new photographs and included two entirely new walks covering the Langemarck battlefield where the 'Last British Tommy' Harry Patch fought and also the Potijze area.
