Double-sided map of the Western Front across northern France and Belgium during World War I, presenting the battlefields in a series of map panels annotated with present day monuments and/or front lines and directions of various offensives, plus extensive informative additional notes and numerous photos.
On one side separate panels show the main battlefield areas with present day road network and locations of various cemeteries and monuments. The panels cover the Ypres Salient, the Somme battlefields, the Verdun area, the Paris - Château Thierry - Reims area, the battlefields between Arras and Lens with Vimy Ridge, and the area south of Armentières. An overview map of northern France and the Low Countries indicates coverage by these more detailed panels and shows major roads across the whole region. Each panel is accompanied by notes and colour photos of its main locations.
The reverse side provides a general map of the whole area of the Western Front from the Channel to Nancy, indicating the front lines and the direction of offensives during different stages of the war, from the first German advance in 1914 to the Armistice Line. The map is surrounded by several panels of more detailed maps, extensive text on various aspects of the Great War, and contemporary black-and-white photos. Also provided here is a political map of Europe at the start of the conflict and a chronology table listing main events between the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo and the Armistice.
PLEASE NOTE: this title provides an extremely comprehensive and informative overview of various areas and topics relating to the Western Front and World War I. For visiting specific theatres of the conflict, particularly the Somme battlefields and the Ypres Salient with their numerous cemeteries and monuments, we recommend purchasing more detailed maps of each area, such the Holt maps or maps from the two national survey organizations: the IGN and the Belgian Survey.
