Fatal Avenue

A Traveller's History of the Battlefields of Northern France and Flanders 1346-1945

«Exceedingly well written... triumphantly succeeds... Richard Holmes is equally sure-footed when dealing with the human element, writing with equal conviction about Joan of Arc, Malborough, Napoleon, Haig, Foch, Ludendorff, Montgomery, Eisenhower, and many others. His book is an outstanding recruit to the shelves of military history»

«A panoramic view of the military history of the battle-scarred landscape extending from Lorraine to Normandy»

«Enthralling information on everything from archery to fortification, and from strategy to ecology... It could scarcely be bettered»

Ronald Blythe

«Utterly fascinating. Its combined activities as uplifting route-map of courage and gloire and as sobering geo-history of human folly makes this a shaking, appalling, irresistible read»
