Large-Scale Map of the French Battle-Front

    Naturevolume 98page388 (1917) | Download Citation



    THIS map, on a scale of four miles to an inch, shows the battle-front from Peronne to Verdun. There is a gap of about twenty miles to the south of Peronne, but the advance of the Allies will no doubt soon bring this part of the battle-line within the area of the sheet. The map shows woods in green, and the present front, approximately as it was on November 10, by a red line. There is, unfortunately, no attempt to show elevation either by contours or spot-heights. Rivers, railways, and canals are clearly and accurately shown, and there is an abundance of names. The map should make it easy to follow the course of any advance, on this front, though the absence of indications of relief will not help the reader to grasp the significance of the line of front. There is a companion map at the same price of the British front to the north.
