Now all roads lead to France and heavy is the tread
Of the living; but the dead returning lightly dance.

Europe's Changing Borders: 1900 – 1914 – 1918 – Today

Europe's Changing Borders
From the BBC

I was reminded over the Christmas holidays of Mr. Putin's statement that he wished to return Russia to its 1914 prewar borders. This led me to this excellent online feature from the BBC website that shows the evolution of European borders from 1900 until now in a series of 15 maps. I think you will find it interesting. Just click on the link below the 1914 map to start at Map #1, 1900.

  1. A wonderful series of maps. Too bad they stop in 1994.
