  • The first book of its kind to gather the long-lost accounts of ex-soldiers returning to the Western Front in the interwar years

  • Illustrated with a remarkable archive of images of the destruction of post-war France and Belgium

  • Offers a fascinating insight for anyone interested in visiting the battlefields of the First World War to see how they have changed over the past century

  • Written by the award-winning author of the sell-out Christmas Truce by the Men Who Took Part, also published by Fonthill Media

In the years after the First World War, thousands of men who had fought on the battlefields were drawn back to the Western Front. For the former soldier, these journeys of remembrance offered a chance to pay homage to their past and to see what peace looked like in those places where they had only known war.

Pilgrimage to the Western Front gathers together the first-hand accounts of veterans as they retrace their wartime footsteps and stand again at the scenes where they lived through one of history’s bloodiest conflicts. The fascinating reports reveal what they found on their return and their reflections and memories of places still healing from the devastation of the war years. Discover their emotions and what greeted the battle-scarred men as they revisited old haunts, met former friends and foe, and confronted their past.
