about

The First World War was one of the deadliest conflicts in human history and changed the face of foreign policy and European geography forever. Despite the wealth of literature on the subject Bradt's World War I Battlefields is the only compact practical travel guide to cover both French and Belgian battlefield sites. Produced in a lightweight and portable format, the guide will cover all the main memorials and museums alongside practical information on how to book the best guided tours or find the resting place of family members lost in battle. Published to correspond with the centenary of the War's outbreak the book covers an area that received 212,701 visitors in 2012 from the UK alone.
The authors, John Ruler and Emma Thomson, are both members of the British Guild of Travel Writers and have each previously written a Bradt guide on the area.
