The Western Front Association (in conjunction with the Imperial War Museum) is pleased to announce the publication of an additional three DVDs for the Mapping the Front Collection.
Each disc follows a theme or location. The new locations include the Arras, Loos and the German maps, all of which are organised around the British map sheet numbers.
These new discs complement our current titles of ‘Ypres', ‘The Somme', ‘The Official History Maps', ‘Gallipoli' and ‘General Haig's Artillery Maps'. The project involved the scanning of the whole of the IWM's collection of Trench and Great War maps. As with the earlier series, they have been scanned in high resolution and are a boon for any Great War or Family History buff.
Each DVD contains:
- Aerial photographs (where available).
- A standard set of index maps.
- Help on how to read the military maps of the period.
- Other contemporary and modern documents of relevance or interest such as the ‘Report on Survey on the Western front, 1914-1918'
The three new DVDs in the collection are:
- Arras - This double DVD set contains the maps covering Army map sheet areas 51B & 51C
- Loos - This double DVD set contains the maps covering Army map sheet areas 36 & 36C
- The German Maps - This single DVD set contains the maps covering the majority of the British held parts of the line.
