    Default Military Operations France And Belgium 1914 - 1915

    A recent purchase of mine... Military Operations France and Belgium 1914, volume 1 & 11 text, volume 1 & 2 maps. Military Operations France and Belgium 1915, volume 1 & 11 text, volume 1 & 11 maps. Strictly speaking - not from WW1, the first book being published in 1922. All volumes were formerly housed in the Royal Engineers library. The volumes are highly detailed accounts of the battles. There are approximately 1800 pages and about 80 large fold-out maps covering from August 1914 to the end of 1915. my aim is to eventually have the full set - about 26 volumes.

    Steve.

    Very nice Steve, you can't beat those fold out maps, they look great. I wonder how many have been stripped out and framed from these volumes.
    Regards,

    Jerry

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    If you go on eBay, you will see them being sold separately from about £3.50 upwards. I also have an original (1919) two volume set of Field Marshal Haig's dispatches. The second volume is 10 very large linen-backed maps. I paid £45 for the set. But just recently, someone on eBay was selling the (incomplete) set of maps on their own for £90.
