More About Cemeteries of the Great War by Sir Edwin Lutyens by Jeroen Geurst
 
 
 
Overview
The British architect Sir Edwin Lutyens (1869-1944) designed 140 cemeteries for soldiers killed in the First World War, in the countryside of Flanders and northern France. All were designed according to various architectural types--a cathedral, church or chapel. They include uniform gravestones, a War Stone and a Cross of Sacrifice, but the difference in size, alignment and provenance make them all unique variations on these themes. Among their most notable qualities are their meticulously chosen position in the landscape, the varied selection of trees and other greenery and the architecture of the entrance and shelter buildings. In an exhaustive landscape-architectural analysis, this opulently illustrated book charts the history of the designs and reveals their underlying principles of order and variation. All 140 cemeteries are fully documented, with references for locations.
