War Walks: v. 1: From Agincourt to Normandy by Richard Holmes
For hundreds of years battle has raged over the area of northern France and Belgium known as "the fatal avenue". This book guides readers on a journey through the terrain as it is today, seeking to recreate on each walk the atmosphere of the battles through the stories of the men who fought them. Each chapter is illustrated with a map of the battlefield area, and several sketch maps showing troop movements and local points of interest. The battlefields covered are those of Agincourt (1415), Waterloo (1815), Mons and Le Cateau (1914), the Somme (1916), Arras (1940) and Operation Goodwood (1944).
