From its origins to its terrible legacy, the course of the First World War is vividly set out in a series of 173 fascinating maps. Together, these maps form a comprehensive and compelling picture of the war that devastated large parts of Europe, destroying three Empires; these maps illustrate the military, social, political and economic aspects of the war. This revised edition contains a new section depicting the visual remembrance of the war; a guide to the memorials and cemeteries that commemorate the Battle of the Somme.
