This book will be of interest to tourism researchers generally, but also to those researchers in the areas of cultural studies, military histories, social/human geographers and historical geographers. The events of military history have long been a source of visitor attractions and across many countries former battlefields host interpretation centres and have become major tourist attractions. However battlefield tourism is not restricted to battle sites, examples include Hadrian's Wall and the Demilitarized Zone. What is of interest is that while some site are well established and others are becoming imbued with additional significances associated with national identity (i.e. the Gallipoli Peninsular for New Zealand and Australia and Gettysburg in the USA) in other instances there is an almost deliberate amnesia where it appears there is no wish to commemorate past loss between past, present and future.
