This modern and GPS located guidebook to the WW1 battlefields of Ypres and the Somme includes contextual information, maps, photographs and personal stories. This is the book that gives you the experience of a professional guide but allows you to ‘dip in’ and

go at your own pace in your own car. Many people visit the First World War battlefields and leave disappointed, not understanding the connection to the sites they go to or their significance. This guidebook by an experienced teacher, explains the sites, the context and the stories in a simple and easily understood way so that you can enjoy your visit more fully.


The book is new and fit for the modern day with GPS locations that can be easily looked up on smart phones and other devices and map

diagrams which show how to get the most out of the sites when there. There is also contextual information, diagrams and tables to help the understanding of the sites.


The book is packed with over 100 maps, illustrations and photographs showing locations, routes and conditions at the time. It also includes

personal stories, the ones normally reserved for the professional guides. It is less about the big picture of brigades and armies and more about what happened on the ground and how you can link the stories to what you can still see.
