Collection: British WW1 Trench Maps

Military maps, including trench maps, were critical tools for military planners and soldiers during World War I and II. These maps provided detailed information about the terrain, including the location of roads, towns, and other features that could be used to plan military operations.

In particular, trench maps were used by soldiers in the trenches to plan attacks and to navigate through the complex network of trenches and other features on the battlefield. These maps were highly detailed and often included information about the location of enemy positions, as well as information about the terrain and other features of the battlefield.

The British Army produced a large number of military maps during World War I and II, including trench maps and other types of maps used for military planning. These maps were produced by specialist map-making units and were highly accurate and detailed.
