This looks like a very interesting book. Has anyone read it or saw the exhibit at the In Flanders Fields Museum (it ran through to Sept. last year)? I just might have to get a copy.

I've seen the book before and pondered buying it, but then thought of the mass I already have at home.

Stichelbaut is a good author though and a very thorough researcher.

Also very good books of his are "La guerre vue du ciel : 1914-1918, le front en Belgique" (2013)  that exists in French, Dutch and I do Believe also in English and "Images of conflict : Military aerial photography and archeology " (2009)

I first came across his work when I read this (published in 2017): 

 

The Ypres Salient 1914–1918: historical aerial photography and the landscape of war

 

A fascinating and innovative use of modern surveying technology. It will be hard for me to resist the book :)
