2017: Mapping the Great War: A Pair of Lectures on the Maps of the First World War

Presentation Flyer: May 25, 2017 at 12 pm in the Mumford Room of the Library of Congress Madison Building, 101 Independence Ave. SE

The program will begin with The Maps of a World War I, a lecture by Ryan Moore. He will discuss how maps illustrate the military and political facets of the war. He will also discuss how aerial photography, scouting, and prisoner interviews were used to populate intelligence on maps.

Special guest from Great Britain, Professor Peter Doyle, a military historian and terrain analyst, will present Terrain, Maps, and Failure at the Dardanelles, 1915. He will discuss the disastrous Allied campaign at Gallipoli and how planners like England’s top naval administrator Winston Churchill relied upon misleading intelligence gleaned from maps.
