About this title:
Synopsis:
Arlington National Cemetery spreads across the rolling hills west of the Potomac, a serene and reverent sanctuary for the presidents, soldiers, and heroes—famous and unsung alike—who lie in eternal rest among its green lawns and quiet glades. It is a roster dating back to America’s birth and including many of the foremost names in our history.

Bittersweet, breathtaking, sometimes heart-wrenching, always deeply respectful, this commemorative book guides readers gently over tree-lined slopes to share the ceremonies observed throughout the year, from the traditional wreath-laying on Memorial Day, which enshrines centuries of sacrifice, to the moving graveside services that honor individual men and women who served our country. Captured in stunning color by a select group of gifted photographers, these unforgettable images create a portrait as poignant as it is proud.

America s most famous cemetery, Arlington National Cemetery, is the resting place of presidents, soldiers, astronauts, and other patriots who date back to the birth of the USA. Sitting atop the rolling hills on the west side of the Potomac, it represents a telltale cross-section of the nation s history. But it also reveals an unfolding, poignant story each day as the military buries and honours its own. In this commemorative book, now in soft cover format, the reader will encounter the beauty of the tree-lined hillsides and witness the various ceremonies performed throughout the year, from the traditional wreath-laying on Memorial Day to the daily graveside services. Each page showcases full-colour photographs, from stunningly beautiful to heart-wrenching, taken by six National Geographic - caliber photographers as well as by a hand-selected group of accomplished military photographers. Archival photographs also trace the history of the cemetery from the early National Historic Monument, Arlington House, to the eternal flame at the Kennedy graveside to sections for the lost astronauts and victims of the 9/11 Pentagon attack. The opening essay is by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Rick Atkinson. Bookseller Inventory # AAE9781426204562
