Join us as we honor the centennial of the World War I Armistice and the end of the Great War. Traverse the battle fronts of Europe as we study German aerial views of France and both Allied and German weekly maps of the progress of the war. Maps will also examine the political fallout and new boundaries laid out by the Treaty of Versailles.
