'As a History teacher this particular book would come in handy to me whilst teaching certain units but I also feel it is a nice way of introducing map work into a history classroom... I think it is well worth the money. It is interesting and is a different way that I would now consider using to research areas of World War One. The book is well presented, well organised and very easily readable.'- History Teaching Review
