I often find trench maps of Ypres Salient difficult to navigate- this hand-drawn map of the St Julien sector perhaps because of the colour scheme makes the two trench systems easier to locate.

This Project
Charting the daily events of World War One, this history project aims to provide a bite-sized and engaging way to follow the events of 100 years ago. Using a variety of sources, I aim to refer to the main events of the war on the centenary of their occurrence. However, it's not just about the main events, I have also taken time to research lesser known events in order to help the reader to feel engaged with the scope of the war.
