The Mess That Is France

Bored yet of combat and how to posts?  Sorry, more to come.

In the meantime, I haven't posted a map here for awhile, so here's one of the ongoing mess that is France.  I get a real kick out of posting maps while they're being constructed ... and I won't have this one tidied up for several months.  This is a mash-up of two maps, actually, as France spreads over several plates (each 30x35 hexes, hexes 20 mi. in diameter), and some glitches occurred in the cut-and-paste process ... but what the hell, this map isn't neat and pretty at the moment, anyway.  Not all the rivers are shown, nor all the towns (around the edges).  All that is shown in the pink areas are notes for later design.


For some, this will be the most familiar map I've posted, since it covers all of the nastiness that was the Western Front in the Great War.    Cambrai is there, and Verdun, Ypres, Liege, Soissons, Nancy and so on ... a real testament to mass killing on an incompetant scale.

Oh well.  Here's a link to something rare investigators of WWI would want to see.
