An expert on World War I teams with a battle photographer to uncover thousands of these lost details. Hundreds of full-color, oversized photos dramatize what once were bloody landscapes. Then close-ups detail the all but invisible bullet marks, tank tracks, and rusty relics of bunkers, craters, fortifications, and tunnels--from the Marne, Flanders, and the Argonne, to Artois, Verdun, and Ypres.Hide synopsis
