Fields of Battle 1914-1918, Lands of Peace 2014-2018, is a registered charity which has developed a touring street gallery exhibition "based not on the horrors of war, but on how over time, nature has healed the battlefields".

The exhibition will tour the United Kingdom from August 2014 until Armistice Day (11th November) 2018.

The exhibition, which is free to the public, features 66 large-scale (1.8 x 1.2 metre) colour photographs of the battlefields as they are now, with accompanying caption panels detailing the historic significance of the main image together with "thought-provoking learning points".

The exhibition also features a giant walk-on map, with an enlarged European section, "which offers visitors the opportunity to walk from country to country to appreciate the scale and complexities of the conflict. The map puts Europe in context on a global scale, in terms of personnel and resources, together with providing engaging details on key battlefield locations"
