Abandoned Places of World War I by Neil Faulkner

 Two of my great-uncles fought in World War 1, and one died in the battlefields of France, so this book had a special interest for me. Interesting historical detail and beautiful photographs make it a compelling book to read about this dreadful war. The abandoned places include grass-covered trenches, a trench which was a hospital, forts and several different pieces of architecture which have an eerie and desolate beauty. The bones of soldiers bring home the ghastliness of it all, and pictures of them are creepy and harrowing.

This architecture will prove of great interest to historians, as the war continues to be studied.

I received this free ebook from Amber Books via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
