Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Walking through Arlington National Cemetery is an experience like no other. A quiet sense of respect persists, and the beauty is overwhelming. It is the final resting place of thousands of our nation's war heroes, with more added every day in poignant and moving ceremonies. Robert C. Knudsen presents the majesty and dignity of this national cemetery with over 200 full-color photos of Arlington during each of the four seasons. He highlights the natural beauty that surrounds it, with the vibrant colors of fall foliage, the stark contrast of a winter's snow, the soft pink of the cherry blossoms, and the bright sun of the summer. Every branch of the military is represented as well, with up-close photographs of ceremonies, practices, and many of the unique and interesting gravesites Arlington holds. A Living Treasureshowcases the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier; Section 27 and Freedman's Village, where one-time slaves are buried; Kennedy's grave and the Eternal Flame; the honor guards, ceremonial units, and special events for each military branch; and so much more. It includes text sidebars explaining highlights of Arlington's history as well, from the Arlington Ladies to how burial at ANC became such an honor. With a special focus on each branch of the military and each season of the year, A Living Treasureis a unique and beautiful keepsake, whether you've been to Arlington National Cemetery, plan on visiting, or just want to experience the beauty on your own.
