Battlefields of the Western Front 1914-18


"James Kerr’s photographs superbly evoke the haunted landscape of the Western Front. Simon Doughty’s supporting text strikes just the right note. A terrific book.”
Sebastian Faulks

“A beautifully-crafted book with a large number of stunning photographs by James Kerr and thoughtful complimentary text by Simon Doughty, Silent Landscapes is a fitting tribute to the men and women who fought on the Western Front, while simultaneously offering the battlefield visitor a visually stunning accompaniment. The aerial images are fascinating, and the winter shots particularly striking.  The book is highly recommended.”
Richard van Emden
