In terms of familiarity, the Battlefields of Arras, fought during 1917, has become overshadowed by other battles fought that year, including Messines, Passchendaele and Cambrai. Yet, in terms of strategy the fighting in the area, which included Wancourt and Bullecourt, is equally as important to the historian in the understanding of the Western Front. This concise, highly informative and very handy guidebook redresses that imbalance and presents the reader with an insight into a battle which some may not have heard about. Photographs, diagrams and maps, coupled with excellent directions, will make this an indispensable volume to accompany any visit to the area. From the cemeteries to the buildings and across the ground where the fighting took place, this is one book to take to open up the scenario.
