Original map first published c.1920. Republished July 2016.
World war one map, 1914 - 1918, depicting the Western Front, specifically the battle fields of Loos & Hohenzollern in 1915, France during the first world war 1914 - 1918.
As published at the time of this map, c.1920:
The Battle of Loos formed part of the Allied offensive in the west in the autumn of 1915 and was the most ambitious attempt made up at that time. The preparations were on a vast scale. The British share in the operations was to deliver a main attack on the German trenches between Lens and La Basee in close co-operation with the French on their immediate right in Artois. A feint was also made at Ypres by the British Fifth Corps which drew to the help of Duke Wurttemburg the German reserves around Lille at the time our principle attack was developing 30 miles to the south. At the same time the French launched a grand attack in Champagne. To the British main operations the name Battle of Loos was given, and the desperate flights for the Hohenzollern Redoubt, in reality part of the former offensive, have been described as the Battle of Hohenzollern.

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.
