Updated: Dec 29, 2019
Paul Reed, a battlefield tour historian gives a moving 15 minute interview on his job as a battlefield tour guide. From the emotional experiences of taking relatives to the spots were ancestors fell to bringing home the experience of a battlefield within its own physical space in a way that no history book can provide.

He is Head Guide at Leger Holidays who arrange regular tours for not only World War One, but World War Two and the Penninsula war here in Spain as well, for those of you who found their interest peaked by the stories we shared, it is possible to arrange similar tips to experience these place for yourself.
