British Battles: The Front Lines of History in Colour Photographs - Ken & Denise Guest

HarperCollins, 2002, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper.

From the cover: “The Battle of Culloden in 1746 was the last full-scale land battle to be fought on British soil. While almost every other European country has become a battleground since then, for the last 250 years Britain has been spared the horrors of invasion and occupation. Yet all over England and Scotland there are traces of our brutal past. There are tangible signs like monuments to the dead or the bullet holes in the door of Alton church. Local place names like Bloody Meadow keep alive the memory of the hideous slaughter that followed the defeat of several medieval armies.
