For five years, photographer Aled Rhys Hughes visited Mametz on the anniversary of the Battle of Mametz Wood to make images which are equally about the battle and about Wales today. His book collects colour photographs of the battlefield – its topography, the military detritus still to be found there, and mementoes made by the soldiers who served there.

He photographed trees surviving from the battle (some with artillery shells entwined in them), and the present day wood with its respectful graffiti and painted Welsh flags left
by modern day pilgrims to the site. Hughes also includes an evocative group of photographs taken at dusk – ‘the dangerous time’ for troops in the war.
