The naming of the trenches became general practice during the winter of 1914-15 and these names soon appeared on the embryonic trench maps which were produced in ever growing numbers during the later stages of the war—the British producing some 20 million large-scale maps in all. This fascinating book lists each trench name—and the names of any places, camps, localities, and installations associated with them, their significance, and how to find them with the relevant Map References.
