Description
The British Library
A fresh perspective on the Second World War: analysing 100 maps and pioneering infographics from across the global theatres of the conflict, each highlighting the adage that information is power. Millions of maps were produced by the Allied and Axis forces and provide unique insights into what mattered most. Utilising the skills of cartographers, geographers and geologists but also the on-the-spot knowledge of troops, prisoners and resistance fighters. With expert explanations by leading military historian Jeremy Black, themed sections explore maps’ strategic, operational and propaganda value.

This book includes Allied daily situation maps after D-Day; aerial reconnaissance of the Rhine; a British aircrew escape map; a German map of Tobruk; and a War Office map of Singapore. Extensively illustrated with many previously unpublished maps; each presented with expert captions and explanation.
