About the Author:

Peter Chasseaud is a historian of military cartography, a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, and a member of the Defence Surveyors' Association.

Review:

"The appeal of this richly illustrated work lies in the maps—barrage maps, diagrams of 'battlefield geometry' for artillery, diagrams showing the elevation of craters made by exploding mines, and pioneering aerial photography." —Guardian on Mapping the First World War
