From the Back Cover:

This is not another book about World War I. Instead, it explores a relatively ignored aspect of recent rural history: how the ordinary environments of fields, farms, villages and market towns of northern France were reconstituted once peace was restored. Using both official reports compiled by prefets and much more critical commentaries by those whose homes and land had been devastated, Hugh Clout charts the geography of destruction and then analyses the work of the state-directed services, the creation of reconstruction cooperatives, the controversial reclamation of the profoundly devastated 'red zone', and ultimately the reconstruction of the countryside across the ten northernmost departements of northern France.

About the Author:

Hugh Clout is Professor of Geography, University College London where he has taught since 1967. He was Dean of the Faculty of Social and Historical Sciences from 1995 to 2004. He is one of the foremost geographical authorities on modern France and on the European Union in general.
