Touring the Great Battlefields of Europe
For 600 years a small geographic area in what is now northern France and Belgium
has been the scene of critical military engagements. From the medieval encounters at Crécy and Azincourt to the confrontation of massive modern armies at Waterloo, Somme, and Bastogne, many of these fields of battle have remained essentially undisturbed; most still displaying physical evidence or striking memorials of the engagements fought there. They remain fascinating and evocative sites to visit.
French Battlefields publishes visitor’s guides to historic sites under the Fields of War brand and provides information to enhance the battlefield experience through its website and blog.
