Major and Mrs Holt (Tonie and Valmai Holt) are well known military authors with over 20 books published. They are generally credited with having founded the modern battlefield tour industry and their series of maps and guide books are derived from their having conducted thousands of people around the battlefields. The Ypres authorities acknowledge that the Holts' works have been responsible for the growth of battlefield tourism to the Salient and in a survey of British visitors to the Somme, the Tourism Department discovered that over 50% had made their visit because of the Holts' publications.
