This review is from: National Archives British Trench Map Atlas. The Western Front 1914-18. 1:10,000 Regular series with an index of over 20,000 Trench and Topographical names and a commentary for each map[DVD] (Map)
In the eight years that have elapsed since the release of our groundbreaking first Trench Map CD-ROM computer technology has taken a huge stride forwards and we are now able to show in excess of 700 maps on this exceptional DVD. In addition to the maps, we have taken the opportunity to include many years of painstaking research by the world's leading military cartographer, Dr Peter Chasseaud, whose index to trench names and significant places of interest make this DVD a unique and vital core historical resource.
Dr Chasseaud's commentary for each and every one of the 700+ maps further distances this DVD from both its predecessor and the offerings from other sources that have followed the innovative products available from the Naval & Military Press. It goes without saying that a product from the Naval & Military Press has both a robust and easy to use interface for searching, manipulating and printing the maps, as well as the technical support offered by a large professional company. The National Archives trench map collection is acknowledged as the world's finest and most complete source of mapping of the Great War.
