Concise histories of the battles introduce the books, then detailed itineraries guide you around the battlefields with distances, timings, poetry and pictures, plus stories of bravery, and actions.

WHAT THE FOLD-OUT MAPS SHOW
The battlefields in detail and in four colours. All the locations in the guide books are map referenced to, and shown on, the maps. Battle lines and, where appropriate, fighting formations, are shown plus detailed colour coded indexes with information on people, memorials, museums and cemeteries.
