d had not only been pulverised but was now contaminated with the detritus of war. Trenches,dugouts,thousands of miles of barbed wire,abandoned equipment ,the smashed remains of hundreds of thousands of horses and men and the hidden threat of unexploded shells all created an indescribable landscape.In this book Gail Ramsey sets out to show how the Western Front has been transformed over the past hundred years by juxtaposing aerial photographs, trench maps of the period, with present-day matching comparisons, courtesy of Google Earth. Aerial photography was then in its infancy but it began in earnest in 1915 and thereafter became an essential tool to produce the trench mapping which has now made it possible to pinpoint the precise locations depicted in the photographs taken during the war.
