Detailed trench map of the Loos battle area correct as at July 26th 1915
LOOS Sheet 36C Edition 3
This map is corrected to 26 July, 1915 on a scale of 1:10:000 and it stretches from the Hohenzollern Redoubt in the north to Loos itself at the bottom of the sheet. Unlike later maps it only shows the defenders’ lines and defences. Note, particularly, the large number of gun emplacements (or their ‘approximate’ locations as a note says) to the west of Hulluch. This is an extremely interesting map from early in the war, which makes an interesting comparison with the highly detailed maps of later on. Nevertheless, ‘wire entanglements’ are shown quite distinctly from ‘Chevaux-de-frise’.
Questions welcome. Will ship abroad.
Ideal pocket sized copy that opens out to A2 size. Looks great framed or handy for walking the battlefields. Very detailed.
