DESCRIPTION: The publisher has built an outstanding catalogue of 
battlefield guides and 2016 marked an expansion as part of the 
centenary events marking WWI. This book is a very worthy addition 
and provides excellent illustration and clear concise text. Essential 
companion on a battlefield visit.

One of the features of WWI on the Western Front was the number of 
battles fought over the same ground through the conflict there. The 
three Battles of the Aisne featured the British in the first, 1914, 
and third, 1918, where the BEF was heavily engaged. The second battle 
in 1917 was a French failure. This book covers the third battle in 1918.

The fact that three battles were fought on the same ground demonstrates 
the importance of this terrain. Across the three battles, there were 
significant changes in technology and tactics, making this a rewarding 
subject for study.

For those planning to visit the Aisne, this is an essential review that 
contains all of the detail to make the greatest benefit of a visit.

The unusual terrain shaped the battles and this is presented in an 
understandable manner that makes sense of the history.

A considerable number of images, maps and photographs have been included 
in support of the very descriptive text.

For those intending to visit the battlefield, one complete chapter has 
been given over to providing specific tour information, making this an 
ideal and essential pocket book for the visit.
