Online soon

Over the past weeks I received some great books, which I will review soon.

One is about the American civil war called the Blue and Gray Almanac. The reading so far is very interesting.

Also I received a copy of the book ‘The Boer war’ by Martin Bossenbroek. For this book the writter got a price (Libris) for the best history book.

Finally I received ‘Major and Mrs. Holt’s Concise Guide to the Western Front’ which I used during my recent visit to Ypres. The review is online and can be found here.

Yes you read it correctly, I went to Ypres, finally…. It was interesting, shocking at times but a visit worthwhile, especially since the trip was made with some long time friends.

Soon you can read about my visit as well as some comments about the places/musea I visited. One museum not to miss: Memorial Museum Passchendaele 1917.

The battlefield photo’s above were taken there.

Once I find some spare moments I will post the full review and the report. I want to make a top 10 of places/museums to visit in Ypres.

If you got any suggestions, please don’t hesitate to comment below.

Enjoy reading
