Description: In this memorable book, Stephen O'Shea chronicles the battles of the Western Front as he walks back into history to discover for himself and for his generation the meaning of World War I. His consummate skill with words makes this book resonate as few other books on war ever have.

"It's been downhill all the way for civilization since August, 1914, and you can't tell the speed and gradient of the slippery slope unless you try to retrace the steps. This, literally and metaphorically, is what Stephen O'Shea has done. Walk a furlong or two in his shoes and get to know where it all began: you will want to finish the journey in his company and then to start again for yourself". -- Christopher Hitchens

"I have greatly enjoyed Stephen O'Shea's guided walking tour of the Western Front". -- John Keegan, author of The Face of Battle

"A tellingly detailed account of a trek through yesteryear's killing fields, which unites past with present in affectingly evocative ways and with no small measure of art". -- Kirkus Reviews
