This chapter offers a working definition of a ‘landscape of war’ and explores the importance of this analytical category for the history of the First World War. It offers a historiographical overview which contextualises the contributions in the present volume, arranged thematically into four sections: environment and climate, industrial and urban landscapes, cross-cultural encounters with landscapes, and post-war legacies.
