I’m a big believer that to really understand what happened in a battle or campaign, it is best to walk the ground.

Looking at the folds of a landscape, the way towns, villages, or even a shallow ridge in a desert relate to past events not only adds enormous clarity, it is also really exciting: to stand where something so significant happened, where there was once so much human drama, is thrilling.  It provides a very real link to the past.

I’ve been over many battlefields and quite often lead both military tours and take private punters.  I’ve shown small parties of half a dozen, led army groups of fifty soldiers, and even school children too.  They are always very rewarding and a lot of fun.
