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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'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
