The first in-depth history of Langemark German Cemetery to be published with the English speaking visitor in mind, Studentenfriedhof to Soldatenfriedhof tells the story of the evolution of Langemark German cemetery from its creation in the Great War, the influence of the Nazis before and during the Second World War and its evolution into the modern cemetery of today. Dispelling many of the myths and legends that surround the cemetery, the author then takes the visitor on a detailed virtual self-guided tour, following the route planned by its designer in the early 1930's. The clever use of "then and now" images helps the visitor visualise the evolution of the cemetery and explains the "who, what and why" of it all whilst walking in the footsteps of the past.
"Roger Steward must be praised for having finally
succeeded in writing a much needed addition to the
existing English literature on Ypres and its Salient".
