This is a web
site dedicated to the history and battlefields of the Great
War 1914-1918. It aims to provide you with
information about the war itself and on how to visit the
battlefields in France & Flanders, and Gallipoli -
and what to see.
My name is Paul
Reed. I am a military historian, author and
battlefield guide, with more than thirty five years interest
in the Great War, the author of several books (including the best-selling Walking The Somme)
and a frequent broadcaster & consultant on BBC flagship programmes
like Timewatch, My Family At War, and WW1
Tunnels of Death on Channel 5.
For many years I have lived between my house on the
battlefields and my home in Britain, and visited and
walked every part of the Old Front Line from
Flanders to the Vosges.
The site has
been online for many years now and as we enter the
period of the WW1
Centenary it is even more important to remember and
understand the First World War.
