The text is fully supported by illustration in the form of maps and photographs through the body of text - Highly Recommended Each year sees an increase in the numbers of people touring European battlefields of the two World Wars and earlier conflicts. Naturally, this results in the publication of guides to assist the visitors, whether they are planing to tour on their own, or to go with a guided party. There is an obvious need for good guides for those going alone, but it is also equally helpful to those going on a guided tour. This new guide is nicely written by two expert guides. It contains a wealth of detail, enhanced by a well chosen selection of illustrations. It is a handy pocketable sized book that will fit easily into a jacket pocket for those going beyond planning to making the tour. It covers the famous battles that took place on the North Arras front, including the Vimy Ridge. These are amongst the most popular visited sites.
