â€¢ With expert, accessible text, this complete atlas provides an invaluable work of reference for both the general reader and the serious student of World War I.
World War I might conjure up images of the trenches of the Western Front, but it was a far more complex conflict fought in a number of theatres: an air war, a war fought in the Balkans, Italy, Africa, Turkey, the Middle East, and also a naval war in the South Atlantic, South Pacific and Indian Oceans. The Military Atlas of World War I is a comprehensive visual guide to this complex conflict. It plots the exact course of the land, sea and air campaigns in fine detail, enabling the reader to trace the ebb and flow of the fortunes of all sides. With the aid of more than 170 full-colour maps, every theatre of war is covered from the Western Front to Sumatra, from Gallipoli to Galicia to Ghana, from Dogger Bank to Dalmatia, from Romania to Rhodesia, from the Falklands to Togo to Sinai.
All the maps have been specially commissioned from an expert cartographer. Each map has been designed to highlight a particular aspect of the war, thus they vary in shape and size; from isometric to semi-circular and full-page to double-spread; and in outlook, with some maps giving a global perspective while others depict the exact movement of armed forces on the land, sea and air. Battles such as Jutland, the Somme, Cambrai and the Gallipoli campaign are shown in great detail. All maps are accompanied by a key, which helps the reader to understand the action and events. With expert, accessible text, this complete atlas provides an invaluable work of reference for both the general reader and the serious student of World War I.
