Original map first published c.1920. Republished July 2016.
World war one map depicting the battle fields of Germany, France and Belgium, during the year 1918. The Allied and German Lines are differentiated as the key in the top right corner of the map. The various dates troops reached the battle line is illustrated, as are the major battles including the Battles of Amien, Bapaume, and Sell River.
Published as at the time of this map, c.1920:
The Allied battle line in the Western Front fluctuated more during 1918 than in any other year of the war, with the exception of that of 1914. This was due to the series of German offensives from March - July 15th and to the great counter-offensives from that date onward to armistice, Nov.11th. With the exception of a little gain of ground as a result of the Battle of the Somme, 1916, and the recovery by the Allies of additional territory in the same are after Hindenburgs retreat in the Spring of 1917, the west front had remained for over 3 years practically stationary, except where local offensives at Arras, Champagne and Ypres had modified it in favour of the Allies.

We make our own frames from moulding hand finished in our workshops. The standard finish is a distressed black with a gold slip inserted for the larger maps.
We finish the moulding in two other colours, Antique Red and Antique Green. These colours can be used on any of our prints or maps, both reproductions and originals, but have been chosen specifically to suit some of the antique prints and illustrations.
Some of the maps are very big so for weight, shipping and safety reasons we use 3mm acrylic as the glazing material.
