Welcome to The British Trench Map Atlas Website
Published by The Naval & Military Press Ltd.

In the eight years that have elapsed since the release of our groundbreaking first Trench Map CD-ROM computer technology has taken a huge stride forwards and we are now able to show in excess of 700 trench maps on this exceptional DVD-ROM. In addition to the maps, we have taken the opportunity to include many years of painstaking research by the world’s leading military cartographer, Dr Peter Chasseaud, whose index to trench names and significant places of interest make this DVD-ROM a unique and vital core historical resource.

Trench Map Commentary from Dr Peter Chasseaud

Dr Chasseaud’s commentary for each and every one of the 700+ trench maps further distances this DVD from both its predecessor and the offerings from other sources that have followed the innovative products available from the Naval & Military Press. It goes without saying that a product from the Naval & Military Press has both a robust and easy to use interface for searching, manipulating and printing the maps, as well as the technical support offered by a large professional company. The National Archives trench map collection is acknowledged as the world’s finest and most complete source of mapping of the Great War.
