The narrative draws on French and German archival material and personal descriptions. The text is illustrated with numerous diagrams and maps, in particular from the British and German records, and there is an exhaustive guide to the Grange Subway. Other sites open to the public are also explained and put into context

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1917 Bourlon Wood on the Western Front was the scene of fierce back-and-forth fighting between the British and the Germans, with British gains on at least one occasion thrown away by lack of proper follow-up. The Wood formed the left flank of the massive British tank attack at Cambrai, the first of its kind, on November 20, 1917. Bourlon Wood once again came into prominence in September 1918 with the attack of the Canadian Corps against the German defenders, an action that rivaled the Canadian assault on Vimy Ridge
The Battle for Vimy Ridge, 1917 by Jack Sheldon( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a new departure in the Battleground Europe series, this book is a guide to both sides of a major battle - in this case to the Canadian Corps operations against 1st Bavarian Reserve Corps at Vimy from 9 - 12 April 1917, which formed part of the opening of the British offensive, known as the Battle of Arras. Historically, the capture of Vimy Ridge was an event far more significant than its undoubted military importance alone. Here for the first time all four divisions of the Canadian Corps were deployed in line together in one offensive; and although the Corps went to fight even greater battl
Battleground Europe by Nigel Cave( Book )

Flesquières by Jack Horsfall( Book )

5 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Battle of Cambrai (20 November 1917 - 3 December 1917), a campaign of World War I, was noted for the first successful use of tanks. A second Battle of Cambrai took place between 8 October 1918 - 10 October 1918 as part of the Hundred Days Offensive and was a deciding factor in the eventual German defeat. Jack Horsfall covers the fighting west of Cambrai at Flesquières. His tours cover the ground extensively; and he spends a great deal of the tours section on the often neglected cemeteries which hold the bodies of men of both sides. --from Introduction (p. 6)
Ypres 1914 : Langemarck by Jack Sheldon( Book )

4 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These three Battleground Europe books on Ypres 1914 mark the centenary of the final major battle of the 1914 campaign on the Western Front. Although fought over a relatively small area and short time span, the fighting was even more than usually chaotic and the stakes were extremely high. Authors Nigel Cave and Jack Sheldon combine their respective expertise to tell the story of the men - British, French, Indian and German - who fought over the unremarkable undulating ground that was to become firmly placed in British national conscience ever afterwards. When, in October 1914, the newly created

Le Cateau (26-27 August 1914) was the second major action fought by the BEF in the Great War. His men exhausted after fighting at Mons and by the subsequent speedy retreat, Lieutenant-General Horace Smith-Dorrien (commanding II Corps) decided that he had to make a stand in the vicinity of Le Cateau. There his men took on elements of four German corps in an action that succeeded in giving the BEF a respite, but at considerable cost. Amongst other elements of controversy in the conduct of the battle was the handling of the Royal Artillery. The battle also undermined the already fraught relationshi
The Germans at Thiepval by Jack Sheldon( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ninety years after the Battle of the Somme was fought, visitors continue to flock in very large numbers to the massive Memorial to the Missing at Thiepval, site of a bitter three-month struggle during the summer of 1916. This book explains in detail how, from the autumn of 1914 onwards, the German defenders turned this key feature into a virtually impregnable position, from which they were able for weeks on end to repulse every attempt to capture it. Drawing on original maps, photographs and personal accounts of the German defenders, the reader is taken stage by stage through the battles for t
