about

A beautiful, illustrated exploration of European burial sites and memorials from the First and Second World Wars

The wealth of splendid photography in this singular publication features military cemeteries and memorials, conveying their grace, solemn beauty, and deep emotional resonance. Hundreds of cemeteries and memorials from the First and Second World Wars are featured—locations throughout Europe with particular emphasis on sites in England, France, Belgium, and Germany. The book’s essays delve into the landscape and architectural history of these hallowed spaces, which were designed by architects such as Charles Henry Holden, Edwin Luytens, John Russell Pope, and Robert Tischler, among others. These landscapes, each a campaign for remembrance and peace, take on new significance alongside comparative images of more recent memorials, including the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, DC, and the National September 11 Memorial in New York.
Michel Racine is a professor at the National School of Landscape in Versailles, France.
