Unquiet graves guide book - execution sites of the First World War in Flanders by Piet Chielens and Julian Putkowski

Out of print

The Unquiet Graves guide book takes us through the beautiful countryside around Ieper (Ypres) and Poperinge in the Westhoek of Flanders to visit the places of execution and graves of men 'shot at dawn' by the British Army in the Great War.

The book is based on the researches of Piet Chielens and Julian Putkowski, both authorities on the subject, and tells the tragic stories of these men's executions, accompanied by eye-witness accounts and numerous photographs. The route begins at the award-winning In Flanders Fields Museum in Ieper and can easily be followed by car or bicycle.

De route Rusteloze Graven voert door het mooie land van Ieper, Heuvelland en Poperinge in de Westhoek van Vlaanderen, naar de executieplaatsen en graven van de ge‘xecuteerden van het Britse leger in de Grote Oorlog.

Deze gids is gebaseerd op het onderzoek van Piet Chielens en Julian Putkowski. Zij vertellen over deze executies aan de hand van talrijke ooggetuigen, documenten en foto's. De route start bij het gelauwerde In Flanders Fields Museum in Ieper en is zowel geschikt voor fietsers als voor auto's en bussen.
