Recommended by Which? Travel 2014.

This is an important book which will ensure the longevity of respectful understanding and knowledge of the battlefields. From the outset, the authors make clear that it is their aim to prompt more questions than they answer. They make clear their passion for the battlefields, and the maintenance of their existence as a place of pilgrimage, against the challenges of the modern world and prospective development.

About Tonie Holt

Major and Mrs Holt founded the first organisation to offer battlefield tours to the general public in the late 1970s. Since the 1990s they have been writing their series of guide books, incorporating all that they have learned from their experiences conducting thousands of people around battlefields. This series, designed to serve as companions for travellers, whether sitting at home or physically visiting the battlefields, includes detailed travel directions, military history, fascinating anecdotes and tourist information. The Holts share the writing of their books equally and conduct all their own research, spending many weeks on the ground as they prepare each new book or update previously published titles.
