Description
Touring the battlefields of Europe can be a bewildering experience for the modern visitor—not for what you see, but for what has since vanished. A hauntingly beautiful grain field in Austria was once the site of the largest battle ever between knights in armor, while sheep now graze on the grass-covered trenches of the Somme where more than 1.5 million soldiers lost their lives. And a seemingly pristine forest now stands where American and German tanks fought the Battle of the Bulge. In this remarkable commemorative history, German photographer Alfred Buellesbach takes readers on a photographic journey through 34 of Europe's most significant battlefields, presented in stirring landscape portraits 22 inches across.

"This striking book marries pithy descriptions of key European battles throughout history with lush contemporary panoramic photographs of the sites of those conflicts. The battlescapes—from Hastings to Austerlitz, Waterloo to Hurtgen Forest—beckon readers to step into the frame and imagine themselves in the battle's midst, the eerily serene scenes transformed by war."—Military History Quarterly
