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

Map Series #18: Gallipoli Landings


I led two tours to Gallipoli, and I wish I had this one. It has more information in a concise and well-designed scheme than anything I had discovered up to that point.  I wouldn't try to read it, as it is displayed at 580x580 pixels. Just click on it, and you will get the 2400x2400 format.  Also see our 2013 article "Visualizing Gallipoli" to get a feel for the scale of the battlefield.
