150 striking photographs from around the world
An overgrown bunker at Ypres; a rusting gun carriage in a field in Flanders; perfectly preserved trenchworks at Vimy, northern France; a rocky mountaintop observation post high in the Tyrolean mountains. More than 100 years after the end of World War I, the conflict's legacy can still be seen from Europe to the South Atlantic.
Abandoned Places of World War I explores more than 100 bunkers, trench systems, tunnels, fortifications, and gun emplacements from North America to the Pacific. Included are defensive structures, such as Fort Douaumont at Verdun, the site of the Western Front's bloodiest battle; the elaborately constructed tunnels of the Wellington Quarry, near Arras; and crumbling concrete pill boxes in Anzac Cove, Turkey.
