Old Front Line
Battlefields of WW1

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 are in the period of the WW1 Centenary it is even more important to remember and understand the First World War.

Lest We Forget...
