Map Library

Number six in a series of folding postcards, each one showing one of the Western Front battlefields on the interior. The outer back shows a map of central Europe with the Entente Allies is pink and the Central Powers in Yellow. The map shows Europe after Turkey's entry into the war at the end of October, 1915, and before Italy's entry in May, 1915. The publisher may have hoped neutral Italy and Romania would soon join the Allies, and has outlined them in pink.
