Traveller's Guides to the Battles & Battlefields of WWII
A new kind of guidebook. Each title in the series gives comprehensive information about:
• Major battles and battlefields • Memorials, sites, cemeteries, and statues • How to get there; what to see • Contemporary eyewitness accounts • Maps and then-and-now photographs
The Traveller's Guides help us understand what it was like to have endured the ordeal of combat. Through their own words, we learn the feelings of those young men and women of many nationalities who fought and died. What were their private thoughts and fears? Their personal memories? Contemporary eyewitness accounts woven into the fabric of each title, give the series an immediacy and vividness that marks a new departure in guidebooks.
