Product Overview

Walking through the battlefields of Europe today can be a bewildering experience--not for what you see, but for what is now vanished. In his new book, German photographer Alfred Buellesbach takes readers on a photographic journey through 34 of Europe's most legendary battlefields. A hauntingly beautiful grain field in Austria was once the site of the largest battle ever between knights in armor. A seemingly pristine forest marks the spot where Americans fought the Germans in the bloody Battle of the Bulge. And sheep now graze on the grass-covered trenches of the Somme where more than 1.5 million soldiers lost their lives.

Three-hundred stunningly reproduced photographs, together with text provided by long-time Osprey editor, Marcus Cowper, tell a moving story that will stir armchair generals and travelers alike. For each battle, full-bleed panoramic battlescape photos are supplemented with candid shots of the surrounding area, including present-day cemeteries and memorials.

Battlescapes is a timelessly apt tribute to the landscapes which will forever be remembered for that brief moment in time when they were consumed by war.
