About this book
A united Europe has been in existence for over 50 years, however before the European Union was formed the continent saw over 2 millennia of constant conflict. The battlefields where these wars were decided dot the landscape of Europe, bearing witness to the sacrifice paid by armies of the past, and acting as reminders to those who forget the dangers of conflict. This book collates the work of Alfred Buellesbach, who has spent years travelling around Europe to photograph battlefields. Some of the sites have a sad history, or host memorials and cemeteries. The beauty of other sites conceals the brutality that once played out over them. Battlescapes combines these images with details for visitors.
