World War I might conjure up images of the trenches of the Western Front, but it was a far more complex conflict fought in a number of theatres: an air war, a war fought in the Balkans, Italy, Africa, Turkey, the Middle East, and also a naval war in the South Atlantic, South Pacific and Indian Oceans. It truly was a global conflict. The Military Atlas of World War I is a comprehensive visual guide to this complex conflict. It plots the exact course of the land, sea and air campaigns in fine detail, enabling the reader to trace the ebb and flow of the fortunes of all sides. With the aid of more than 160 full-color maps, every theatre of war is covered â?? from the Western Front to Sumatra, from Gallipoli to Galicia to Ghana, from Dogger Bank to Dalmatia, from Romania to Rhodesia, from the Falklands to Togo to Sinai. All the maps have been specially commissioned from an expert cartographer. Each map has been designed to highlight a particular aspect of the war, thus they vary in shape and size â?? from isometric to semi-circular and full-page to double-spread â?? and in outlook, with some maps giving a global perspective while others depict the exact movement of armed forces on the land, sea and air. Battles such as Jutland, the Somme, Cambrai and the Gallipoli campaign are shown in great detail. All maps are accompanied by a key, which helps the reader to understand the action and events. With expert, accessible text and 150 color and black-&-white photographs and illustrations, this complete atlas provides an invaluable work of reference for both the general reader and the serious student of World War I.

A comprehensive atlas based on the Arthur Banks atlas first published in 1975. The maps in the original were all painstakingly hand-drawn in black and white, covering every aspect of the first truly global war. This book takes the information laid down by Banks and reinterprets it in full color, computer modeled cartography. The book covers the main reasons why the major powers entered the conflict, the individual battles fought along the Western Front as well as in depth coverage of the war in the east of Europe. The War at sea is mapped in great detail, including the clashes at Dogger Bank and Jutland as well as the German submarine campaigns and the first major sea borne landing at Gallipoli. The First World War saw the first extensive use of air power, maps show the routes taken by the German Zeppelin raids on eastern England as well as the Allied strategic bombing effort at the end of the war. In Arthur Banks own words: "I hope that the book will be a convenient reference work which deals with those areas where a more detailed examination in cartographical terms has long been demanded.

This is a stunning visual history of the greatest conflict in world history. The Second World War is the largest event in the history of mankind: no populated continent was untouched by its operations and the political structure of the post-war world has been largely determined by its outcome. The global nature of the war, and the ambitions of the belligerents, meant that it was fought on a scale which, even today, confounds the imagination. It was a stimulus to unparralleled economic activity and provoked the most important clash of ideologies experienced by the world since the Crusades. The scale and scope of the war is presented here in graphic form. Maps form the basis for tracing not only the military campaigns, but also the social, economic, and political developments during the war. Examination of decisive battles, and military tactics, new weaponry, and key commanders adds a further depth of understanding of the war that forever changed our world.
