From its origins to its terrible legacy, the tortuous course of the Great War is vividly set out in a series of 174 fascinating maps. Together the maps form a comprehensive and compelling picture of the war that shattered Europe, and illustrate its military, social, political and economic aspects. Beginning with the tensions that already existed, the atlas covers:

  • the early months of the war: from the fall of Belgium to the fierce fighting at Ypres and Tannenberg:
  • the developing war in Europe: from Gallipoli to the horrors of the Somme and Verdun
  • life at the front: from living underground, the trench system and the mud of Passchendaele to the war graves
  • technology and the new horrors: from phosgene gas attacks to submarines, tanks and mines
  • the home fronts: from German food riots to the air defence of Britain, the Russian Revolution and the collapse of Austria-Hungary
  • the aftermath: from war debts and war deaths to the new map of Europe.

This third edition contains an entirely new section depicting the visual remembrance of the war; a fascinating visitors' guide to the memorials that commemorate the tragedy of the Somme.
