Bart Metselaar has been visiting the battlefields of the Western Front for over twenty years, from his late teens. He has spent much time walking the battlefields of the Western Front and has acquired an encyclopaedic knowledge of the ground and the surviving remnants of the war.


An amateur cartographer, he has produced the mapping for a number of Pen and Sword Battleground Europe books. He has been working on this Verdun map for some years, painstakingly searching out memorials that have been all but forgotten. He is now turning his attention to the Arras battlefield.
