Each battlefield chapter starts with some pertinent quotations by participants, has a succinct Summary of the Battle, Opening Moves and What Happened sections then a Battlefield Tour which follows the same tried and tested formula as the rest of the series of a timed and measured itinerary with historic and anecdotal information at each stop. A detailed Sketch Map showing battle lines and each stop on the route accompanies every battle using the same colour code (of yellow for memorials, purple for cemeteries, blue for museums) as the larger Holts' Battle Maps.

The index page has the following entries -

The whole of the Western Front from the Channel to Cantigny is covered by our two guide books.

Do have a look at the one that covers the southern part of the Western Front. Even seasoned visitors will find something of interest.
