The Great War Map of Battle Lines in France and Belgium - 1926
This interesting composite of operation map and pictorial map was designed and drawn by WWI veteran and decorative cartographer Ernest Clegg in 1926 and shows the exact position of the divisions of the allies and the central powers on 25 September 1918, taken from a plan compiled for the British War Records under the supervision of Field-Marshall Lord Haig. After World War I, maps became important vehicles for soldiers and generals to tell their stories of the conflict. This pictorial map combines many of the forms of First World War military operation maps with images of iconic weapons and events from the conflict to tell the story of the war on the Western Front. The operation map elements evident in Clegg’s map include the base map, which is a simple line map of major terrain features, as well as the rectangular unit symbols identifying the divisions for the various combatants, and the margin notes indicating which American divisions were absent from the front at the date specified by the map. The pictorial elements of the map include ships of the British Grand Fleet in the North Sea, a German Zeppelin, the German army’s infamous “Paris Gun,” and a Mk. IV tank.
