The Hills .
The shape of the battlefield is readily seen as ground above 50m is shaded making the Passchendaele and Messines ridges stand out, as do Mont Kemmel and Mont Noir, the Flanders hills that lead back towards Mont des Cats and Cassel. A further help to understanding the progress of the battles is that the significant woods are clearly marked in green.

Modern Roads and Old Names
Modern roads and motorways are shown so that the map can be used for navigation as well as for support in reading about the battles while 1914/18 place names are shown in red.

Map Detail

The Indexes
Overlaid on the map is a grid reference system which allows all of the information to be readily accessed. These references are used in the indexes (see below) and although the map can be purchased by itself and used on its own, the grid references are also co-ordinated with the stops recommended in Major and Mrs Holts Battlefield Guide to the Ypres Salient. The map is actually wrapped with the book.
There are two types of index.

1. Location. Thus upon seeing a marker marker on the map at grid R27 the index reveals that it is Mud Corner CWGC Cem.
2. Thematic. If wanting to find where 2nd Lt George Llewellyn Davies is buried , who was Barrie’s model for Peter Pan, the Literary Figures index shows it to be at M7, Voormezeele Encl No 3 CWGC.
