If you travel with children I adapt the itinerary. your kids will love to take home some objects that they have found in the fields. They have their own rhythm to discover the battlefields. Choose less sites, take time for a pic-nic to let them run around, let them prepare an object like a painted pebble, a photo, the biography,... that they can leave at a grave. Your children will still talk about the battlefield tour in many years.
