Somme battlefields of the Western Front presented on three map panels showing present-day road network overprinted with WWI-related information: front lines from different stages of the conflict, cemeteries, private memorials, preserved tranches, bunkers, demarcation stones, etc, all cross-referenced to extensive lists.

The main, more detailed map shows the area between Albert and Bapaume at 1:40,000. British and German front lines on 1st July 1916 are marked, also corps and divisional boundaries between different units of the British Army, as well as ground taken during the 1st July offensive and ground held on 17th November 1916. Extensive overprint gives, where necessary, 1914-1918 place names and colour-coded markers are cross-referenced to information lists on the other side of the map.

On the reverse, a map at 1:70,000 shows a wider area, extending west to Amiens and across the Somme, including locations of General Haig’s and British Fourth Army’s headquarters. A small inset at 1:400,000 shows the 1918 Sector along the Avre, around Moreuil, Aubvillers and Montdidier. This side also provides separate indexes for each panel, and list of war cemeteries, winners of the Victoria Cross buried or commemorated on the Somme, bunkers, etc. The markers on the maps and their corresponding lists are colour-coded for easier reference. Also provided is a list of 15 key locations with their GPS coordinates.
