Burne, Lt.-Col. Alfred H.


2nd ed., 1951. frontis., map + 31 other maps + 9 panoramas. D.j., 22 x 14cm. Spine of d.j., discoloured o/w V.G. This book aimed to fill a gap in literature as it dealt with the nineteen principal battlefields of England to provide guidance and information not otherwise previously procurable outside the pages of journals of learned societies. Through careful verbal description and thirty-two maps supplemented by nine panoramas, this book enables the visitor to identify for himself the correct site of both the battle and the various incidents that occurred in it. In some cases, such as Arthur's battle of Badon and Alfred's battle of Ashdown, where the site was in dispute, the author was at pains to establish the correct situation and has gone to the original sources for his facts.
