Ypres In War and Peace – French
Martin Marix Evans
For many, the name of Ypres invokes some of our most poignant poetry, written by soldiers at the front line. Reminders of the horrors and heroism of a terrible war await the visitor, but also the pleasures of discovering the richness of a heritage that stretches back over 800 years. Ypres in War and Peace provides not only a guide in French to events and memorials of the First World War, but also a revealing introduction to the fascination of an ancient and modern city – an ideal souvenir to take home.
