Overview

Battlefields Then & Now provides a fresh insight into the sites of some of history's greatest conflicts. By overlaying modern photographs of the battlefield with dramatic reconstructions of ten of the key battles, it compares in a unique way scenes of struggle and heroism with the often pastoral site today. Featured are reconstructions of major battlefields, printed on flippable transparent overlays and superimposed over present-day color photographs. The accompanying text places each battle in its historical context and describes the factors that led to the site being chosen by, or forced on, the commanders of the opposing sides. The battles are graphically described, and their impact on politics or military strategy is made clear.
