The Underground War: Vimy Ridge to Arras
The Underground War is the first of a planned series of four volumes providing a guide to the war underground along the British part of the Western Front. Starting with a description of the development of the British Tunneling Companies, this first volume covers central Artois, focusing on the area of the whole of Vimy Ridge to the river Scarpe, the `Labyrinth', and the city of Arras. Drawing on French, German and British archival material, and personal accounts, it describes some of the intensive mine warfare that was a characteristic of the fighting in this sector until mid 1917, the experiences of the tunnellers on both sides and the impact of mine warfare on the infantry.For centuries the chalk that lay close below the surface was mined as a building material. The large caverns thus created provided ready made, adaptable shelters for both sides in the conflict. A number of these, such as at Maison Blanche and Roeux, along with Wellington Cave in Arras - the latter now open to the public in an innovative and effective new display - are described in the book. The book covers in detail the construction and use of subways, most notably those in the Canadian Corps area of operations and under Arras. These subways were an important element in the planning for the opening of the Battle of Arras, on 9 April 1917. Full use is made of the recent work by the Durand Group under Vimy Ridge, which provides some unique photographs of charged mines, the Goodman Subway, fighting tunnels and the graffiti and carvings of soldiers who were in these time capsules from the Great War. The intensive work undertaken by the authors on the Vimy memorial site has enabled them to give visitors a detailed historical description of the mining war and an explanation of the remains of the fighting that can now be seen on the surface and what is accessible to them underground in the Grange Subway. The book, besides numerous contemporary photographs, has an extensive, illustrated tours section, the characteristic of the Battleground Europe series, including advice to visitors, a cemeteries chapter that concentrates on the final resting places of tunnellers, as well as detailed itineraries to places of tunnelling interest.
