BATTLEFIELDS OF NORTHERN FRANCE & THE LOW COUNTRIES Guide WWI WW2 Somme Cambrai






BATTLEFIELDS OF NORTHERN FRANCE
AND THE LOW COUNTRIES

MICHAEL GLOVER

MICHAEL JOSEPH: LONDON
1987

Agincourt, Cambrai, Omaha Beach, Ypres, the Somme...some of the most dramatic battles in history, particularly during the two World Wars, took place in 'the Cockpit of Europe'. They are fascinating to visit and close to routes which make them easily accessible to modern tourists.

Michael Glover selects and comments on the battlefields. He explains just why and how the battles took place, choosing battlegrounds that to a large extent still exist and which still give the visitor a clear impression of their past. Detailed travel information makes the visit easy for today's traveller.

Each battle is dealt with in three sections, first the background and influences which led up to the action are described. This is followed by a guide to the ground, showing precisely how the battle was fought and how the scene looks today. The third section contains penetrating accounts of nearby places, people, events, weapons, tactics or inspired works of art, which give the reader special insight into the reality and atmosphere of the battle.

The reader is encouraged to share the feelings and intentions of both soldier and general as, faced with sometimes overwhelming problems, difficult terrain and impossible odds, they attempted to win wars which the politicians were unable to end by other means.

Visiting these battlefields will bring substance and understanding to those historic and evocative names.

Payment

PayPal is the preferred method of payment. If you are in the UK, please feel free to choose my other options. Cheques/Postal Orders. Pounds Sterling only. Please make cheques/postal orders with the item name and number, your name and address. Non UK buyers, I may accept other payment methods if you contact me before bidding, but other charges may apply.

Shipping

All books sent securely packaged, usually bubble wrapped and in a padded envelope or boxed. 
I obtain Proof of Postage for all items sent via Royal Mail (From April 2013 compensation is reduced from £46 to £20 on standard 1st & 2nd Class and increased to £50 on signed for).

I work hard to keep the cost of shipping to a minimum whilst maintaining a high standard and do not profit from the shipping cost.
As a book buyer myself I always send books out as I would wish to receive them.

I am happy to combine shipping and for purchases of 3 or more books the savings can be substantial (more than the ebay discount shown). Please contact me for full details, providing your location and the items you are interested in for a quote; or just wait for the invoice and I will find the best options for you.
UK buyers please note Royal Mail changes introduced on 2/4/13 means it is often cheaper to send books separately (crazy but true)

If you have any other requirements please ask I will be happy to help (I want to sell my books). If you want to complain about the cost of stamps please contact the Royal Mail. 



Terms of Sale

Payment within 7 days please, but if you contact me before hand I may be willing to wait longer.

If you buy more than one item please wait for the combined invoice so I can calculate the shipping discount.

Your satisfaction is guaranteed! All of my auctions have a 14 day return privilege. I try to describe and image my books as accurately as possible, you may return this item if it is not as described (as long as the item has not damaged in any way) and I will refund in full. Please contact me before returning. I WANT YOU TO BE HAPPY WITH YOUR PURCHASE



About Us
