Mapping the First World War
The Great War through maps from 1914-1918. The Imperial War Museum in London has in its collection maps documenting war zones and maps used in war. A selection of these maps, along with photographs, is used to show the history of the First World War. Types of maps vary from those showing country boundaries, maps showing key battles, trench maps and maps from newspapers and propaganda. Battles include those at Gallipoli, the Middle East and the Western Front. With chapters arranged in chronological order this book by Peter Chasseaud provides an informative interpretation of the story of a world at war.
