Book Description HTML

During 2015, the author completed a 3,500 mile long journey to commemorate everybody who died or suffered during the Great War a century ago. His journey began at an unknown battlefield in Asiatic Turkey, before he followed the route of the battlefields right across Europe, before finally ending his journey at the English Channel in Belgium. (Plus a bit more to get home to Yorkshire.) Trail of Poppies is the story of his journey. It is humorous at times, but it gets darker the further west he goes, as the appalling truth about the Great War becomes obvious to the reader. It is a history book as well as an adventure travel book, as the author has accurately described the events that took place at the locations that he visited.
