Gardens Of Remembrance (Paperback)
In Normandy, over 100 000 combatants from 14 different nations lie in 28 War-cemeteries on land given by France in perpetuity. These are incomparable enclaves of remembrance. They symbolise both presence and absence : the ever present cost in human lives, the absence of all those for whom so many still grieve. An all-inclusive guide, GARDENS OF REMEMBRANCE describes the origin of each War Cemetery, its surroundings, characteristics and geographical situation. The reader will find in this guide the story of those whose lives were taken from them, often before the age of twenty. An indispensible work for those who seek to find, remember or ponder where feelings rather than words, pass on the message forever present among the Fallen.
