For maximum pleasure and understanding visiting the Battlefields should not be done in an haphazard manner, but rather one should choose an era, war or campaign and then select the sites you want to visit.

To assist you in this respect we have divided the route into the various eras and wars and listed the sites accordingly.

Whether you choose to use the services of a specialist guide, and for maximum enjoyment we always advise you to do so, or whether you are guiding yourself, it is always advisable to read up a little on the sites and war before making your visit. For this reason you will find reference to various books and authors that are specialists in their field.

We also recommend that you have a good road map in your vehicle at all times.

The contents of this site are not intended as a source of historical reference but merely to provide the visitor to the region with some background knowledge of the events that took place and what they can expect to find on the site.
