BEFORE ENDEAVOURS FADE
A guide to the battlefields of the first world war
Autore: R.E.B. Coombs
Nuova edizione, ampliata e aggiornata di questa guida ai campi di battaglia della prima guerra mondiale: Ypres, Arras, Cambrai, Amiens, St.Quintin, Mons, Le Cateau, Reims e Verdun. Oltre 850 foto in bianco e nero di memoriali, ceppi, e i siti come si presentano oggi oltre a 28 mappe per localizzare i siti e seguire il percorso dei combattimenti.
From the Belgian coast, across the fields of Flanders, over the valley of the Somme and down the line to the Argonne: all the major battlefields of the First World War - Ypres, Arras, Cambrai, Amiens, St Quentin, Mons, Le Cateau, Reims, Verdun and St Mihiel - are criss-crossed in this book over more than thirty different routes, each clearly shown on a Michelin map. Every significant feature is described in detail. Indispensable for anyone contemplating a tour of the battlefields in Belgium and France, this book combines the years of knowledge, travel and research of its author, Rose Coombs, who worked at the Imperial War Museum in London for nearly forty years. Since her death in 1991, After the Battle's Editor, Karel Margry, has travelled every route, checking and revising the text where necessary, as well as re-photographing every memorial. Many new ones have been added, including the new cemetery at Fromelles inaugurated in July 2010, yet we have striven to keep true to the flavour of Rose's original concept . . . before endeavours fade.
