YPRES AND THE BATTLES FOR YPRES

This book is a reprint of the Illustrated Michelin Guide to the Battlefields (1914 - 1918) and is excellent value with a brief account of the years 1870 up to 1914 as an introduction, with maps, photos, stories and historic write ups, a fantastic 148 page book that is an absolute MUST for anyone who has an interest in this area

Brand new and in superb unused condition

 

A detailed guidebook to the Great War battlefields in and around the Ypres salient. Written soon after the engagements they describe, it is also accompanied by good, clear maps.

The first 46 pages of this 146 page book give an account of the fighting in the Ypres salient throughout the war, beginning with the First battle of Ypres in which the regulars and reservists of the BEF withstood every effort made by the Germans to take Ypres. The battles are described in fair detail, highlighting the French part in the fighting, and there are good, clear maps to support the narrative. The next fifty pages are devoted to a two-day visit to the battlefield with Lille as the starting point, describing what is to be seen en route, again with good supporting maps. In outline the itinerary takes the visitor along the route Lille - Armentieres - Messines - Poelcapelle - Ypres - Poperinghe on the first day. The next day carries on from Poperinghe - Les Monts - Bailleul - Bethune and back to Lille. Finally there is another tour in an area having nothing to do with Ypres, that is a visit to the Arras battlefield, from Arras - Lens - Douai and back to Arras. This is an interesting account of the battlefields, written so soon after the events they describe.

Visits to Ypres are usually combined with trips to places like Albert and this guide will be as useful there as the others are for ‘the Somme’. The history contained in it is again as impressive and the suggested itineraries sketched out in the 1920s can still be followed. The Ypres Salient today contains some of the most famous war sites to be found anywhere. The ramparts are evocative and remind one of the troglodytic lives lived in them by thousands of British soldiers; Sanctuary Wood and Hooge are known to anyone with even a fleeting knowledge of the Great War; Hell Fire Corner and the Menin Road have been given permanent niches in British history through soldiers’ songs and stories repeated thousands of times; the village of Passchendaele, Polygon Wood and Zillebecke are all familiar and there is still much to see there. This guide puts them all, very succinctly and very successfully, into a proper historical context

One of many World War 1 & World War 2 Books I am selling on Ebay right now, along with some fantastic exact reproduced Trench Maps and D-Day Maps, combined P+P on all items, PLEASE WAIT FOR INVOICE ON MULTI PURCHASES SO I CAN REDUCE P+P FOR COMBINING ORDERS before paying. Please DON'T buy one item and then pay for it, then buy another and pay for it, Ebay won't combine P+P if you do and I get hammered with their fees....We both lose out on Ebays gain
