Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0712358439, Hardcover)

This comprehensive cartographic history gives an account of the geographic intelligence available to the British army in the nineteenth century. Through nearly 1,600 contemporary maps, plans, views, and drawings, Intelligence Revealed provides, for the first time, an aggregate listing of the cartographic records produced by the Quartermaster General’s Office, the Topographical and Statistical Depot (later the Topographical Department), and the Intelligence Branch of the British military.
 
The material presented covers intelligence related to major conflicts, lesser-known wars and actions, expanding colonial and overseas interests, and domestic security concerns. Among the nearly thirty conflicts that are mapped in this book are the Peninsula Campaign, the Crimean War, and the Russo-Turkish War of 1877–78. This essential primary resource material for nineteenth-century historians is accompanied by an extensive illustrated introduction that provides a survey of the administrative and institutional context of military mapping at this time.
