The third ArcLand Book has also just recently been
The In Flanders Field Museum
in Ypres/BE has just recently published a book in
association with ArcLand
that deals with the use of aerial photography to
investigate the history of the First World War in
Aerial photography was a relatively new technology at
the onset of World War I and was embraced as an
indispensable tool of wartime intelligence by all
nations involved in the conflict. As a result,
thousands of photographs taken from the air over the
battlefields of the Great War have survived in
archives throughout Europe, Australia, and the United
States. These pictures present the war from a unique
perspective, clearly showing the developing trench
system, artillery batteries, bunkers, railway lines,
airfields, medical evacuation routes, and more. They
reveal the expanding war in Flanders Fields as the
hostilities spread, kilometer by kilometer,
devastating the environment and resulting in the
complete destruction of the landscape at the front.
Great War Seen from the Air: In Flanders Fields,
1914-1918" is the results of a collaboration
between the In Flanders Fields Museum, Ypres, the
Imperial War Museum, London, and the Royal Army
Museum, Brussels. The book features hundreds of
photographic case studies, illustrating in
unprecedented detail the physical extent of World War
I and the shocking environmental damage it left in its
wake. Supplementing aerial images with maps,
documents, and photos taken from the ground, this
one-of-a-kind visual record stands as an important
contribution to World War I history, revealing the
wartime landscape of Flanders Fields as rarely seen
