"Covering the important WW1 Battles of Ypres, including the notorious Passchendaele, this guidebook takes readers on a historic trip through some of the well-known and most important sites of the area.

This book, part of a new series of guides, is designed conveniently in a small size, for those who have only limited time to visit, or who are simply interested in as an introduction to the historic battlefields, whether on the ground or from an armchair. They contain selections from the Holts' more detailed guides of the most popular and accessible sites plus handy tourist information, capturing the essential features of the Battles.

The book contains many full color maps and photographs and detailed instructions on what to see and where to visit."


The perfect introduction and accompaniment for anyone who wants to explore the Ypres Salient and by extension the great and terrible battlefields of Flanders.
