Sylvestre Bresson, a Great War enthuisiast, created "Terres de Mémoire" in 2006. His biggest wish was to make his work his passion and he has never been happier. He enjoys nothing more than sharing his passion both for the Great War and local culture and knows all the best places to visit, from German bunkers to restaurants serving the finest local produce ! He takes pleasure walking the battlefields and exploring little known areas. Sylvestre is a very caring individual and a tour of the battlefields with him is a dignified, informative and incredibly moving experience. Sylvestre has contributed to various conferences, talks, articles and TV programs. He is the co-author of the new Michelin Guide book of the Somme Battlefields and currently working a guide book about Lille in the Great War.
