The Refights

These maps have for the most part been scanned from The Times History which was published in 1901, so they give a very good approximation of the disposition of forces and the area of the battles.

It is a growing section, with new maps being added on a weekly basis. I am trying to have the maps published on here as close to the anniversary of that particular battle as possible.

In order to encourage users to register, I have decided to only give access to these maps to Registered Users. This way we can build up a small community with a common interest which will make interaction between users in the Forums much easier.

Each map has been scanned in two sizes:

  • a 800 pixel wide smaller map which is displayed on the page, and
  • a 1600 pixel wide bigger map which will open in a separate window as a .JPG image which you can view, print or save (by right-clicking and selecting “Save Picture As...“)
  • If you want an even bigger version, you can email me and I will upload the original scan on request only.

So, in order to view the current maps listed above, please do not hesitate to REGISTER HERE...
