Synopsis: A lavish collection of 150 contemporary maps of the world's greatest battles
Gaze across history’s bloodiest battlefields, as beautifully realized by the cartographers of the time. From the depiction of the battle of Pinkie Cleugh between England and Scotland in 1547 the earliest map printed in the British Isles to chartings of the American War of Independence, and from plans of the advance of the British fleet at the Battle of Trafalgar to the trench maps of World War I, this unique collection highlights the extraordinary influence cartography has had on the nature of warfare. Each illustration is accompanied by an extended caption on the background to the war, including the planning and conduct of the battle in question. Whether the map was used to plan a military campaign, or drawn just after the event to record the conflict, each provides a fascinating piece of military history, and brings the drama of the battle to life. This giant book not only allows these important cartographical documents to be showcased, but also provides a captivating illustrated history of the last 500 years of warfare.
