Illustrated Michelin Guides to the Battlefields (1914-1918)

The Michelin company produced a series of 'Illustrated.....Guides to the Battle-Fields (1914-1918)' and they have long been avidly sought after by people interested in the Great War. They were produced very rapidly after the war ended, and it is quite clear that official records were used by the unnamed authors. The scholarship in them is impressive and G. H. Smith & Son have produced reprints which are of superb quality and very reasonably priced. The only addition made to any of the volumes is a short introduction.
