As well as the famous and much-visited major battlefields of the Somme and Verdun the book includes many lesser-known (at least to British visitors) but equally fascinating battlefield sites, such as the American battlefields round Belleau Wood, the stupendous craters at Les Eparges and the Butte de Vauquois, the sites of British participation on the Aisne and in the Forest of Villers Cotterêts.
