Now all roads lead to France and heavy is the tread Of the living; but the dead returning lightly dance.

Above is a sample of what I consider to be one of the finest illustrated reference works on the war. I found this on a website for homeschooling families. It is marketed as a work for young people in the 8–12-year range, but it is an excellent work for hard-core enthusiasts of any age. It was produced drawing on the Imperial War Museum resources so it is heavily British and Western Front-centric, but its main problem is that at 72 pages, it's too damn short. Back to the young audience for a moment. I think this would be a fine gift for a student whose interest has been recently stirred by the recent Centennial events in the news.
