I like maps, find they are essential to following
naval and military campaigns and battles - preferably with all places in the
text shown on the accompanying map, but maps relevant to my naval interests are
often difficult to find. This particularly applies to sea and coast locations.
Over the years I have enjoyed preparing a variety of maps for use with
www.naval-history.net and hope some
of them may be of interest and use to visitors.
And with more than a passing interest
in World War 1, I found I frequently needed to refer to a "Compass Rose" to
find the location of ships in action or lost at sea. There did not appear to
be any on the internet and so I prepared my own from a 1915 Manual of
Thumbnails of all my main maps follow.
Note that their actual sizes will vary. You are welcome to download, use and modify them plus the Compass Rose above.
In return, please acknowledge www.naval-history.net - thank you.
