Overview
-

The village of St. Julian figured in several battles of the First World War, but this new volume in the Battleground Europe series concentrates on the site's darkest moment: the first use of poison gas as a weapon of war. The St. Julian region saw many acts of courage in the face of unknown and deadly weapons. Maps, photos and sketches cover all the major units and actions at the site, including all eight Victoria Crosses won, and provide a guide to the area as it is today.
