Routledge Atlas of the First World War by Martin Gilbert
Book DescriptionFrom 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.
