A Great War enthuisiast, he created "Terres de Mémoire Battlefield Tours" several years ago. His biggest wish was to make his work his passion and he has never been happier. He has spent the last 15 years visiting, exploring and researching the WW1 and WW2 battlefields in France and Europe. He enjoys nothing more than sharing his passion both for the Great War and local culture 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 done many talks and conferences about the Western Front and has contributed to various T.V programs and documentaries. He is also the co-author of the Michelin Guide book of the Somme Battlefields and he is currently working on a next guide book about Lille in the Great War (to be published in 2021).
