I will be reviewing some of the new sites coming online getting ready for the WW1 Centenary in 2014 over the next few weeks and months.

This site, entitled Remembrance Tourism : Pas de Calais. is a well constructed portal into information about Remembrance and Battlefield Tourism in the Pas de Calais region. As such it encompasses WW1 coastal cemeteries in locations like Boulogne and Etaples, and front line locations such as Neuve-Chapelle, Arras and VimyRidge. The ‘They Came From Across The Globe‘ section contains some fascinating background and images relating to the different nationalities which fought in the area during the war. Other sections list the museums and battlefield sites in the Pas de Calais and information on the principal cemeteries also offers some great insights. The whole content is also viewable on a Google map enabling readers to see where locations are or help them plan a visit.

Available in several languages, with additional tourist information for those who do intend to visit, it is a model site packed with information and well laid out. Highly recommended.
