On a giant artificial world surrounding an artificial sun, one man - a lucidor, a keeper of the peace, a policeman - is on the hunt. His target was responsible for an atrocity, but is too valuable to the government to be truly punished. Instead he has been sent to the frontlines of the war, to use his unique talents on the enemy. So the lucidor has ignored orders, deserted from his job, left his home and thrown his life away, in order to finally claim justice. Separated by massive seas, the various maps dotted on the surface of this world rarely contact each other. But something has begun to infiltrate the edges of the lucidor's map, something that genetically alters animals and plants and turns them into killers. Only the lucidor knows the depths to which his quarry will sink in order to survive, only the lucidor can capture him. The way is long and dangerous. The lucidor's government has set hunters after him. He has no friends, no resources, no plan. But he does have a mission.

There is little documented mapping of conflict prior to the Renaissance period, but, from the 17th century onwards, military commanders and strategists began to document the wars in which they were involved and later, to use mapping to actually plan the progress of a conflict. Using contemporary maps, this sumptuous new volume covers the history of the mapping of war on land and shows the way in which maps provide a guide to the history of war. Content includes: The beginnings of military mapping up to 1600 including the impact of printing and the introduction of gunpowder The seventeenth century: The focus is on maps to illustrate war, rather than as a planning tool and the chapter considers the particular significance of maps of fortifications. The eighteenth century: The growing need for maps on a world scale reflects the spread of European power and of transoceanic conflict between Europeans. This chapter focuses in particular on the American War of Independence. The nineteenth century: Key developments included contouring and the creation of military surveying. Subjects include the Napoleonic Wars and the American Civil War The twentieth century including extended features on the First and Second World Wars including maps showing trench warfare and aerial reconnaissance. Much of the chapter focuses on the period from 1945 to the present day including special sections on the Vietnam War and the Gulf Wars.

During the Civil War, a good map could spell the difference between victory and defeat. This book collects the war's most notable, interesting, and beautiful maps--and tells the story of how they were made. Ranging from exquisitely detailed renderings reproduced in full color to rough pencil sketches drawn from horseback, these maps are both striking works of art and invaluable historical artifacts. The anecdotal text explains the techniques and travails of mapmaking during the war and reveals the little-known cartographic exploits of George Armstrong Custer, writer Ambrose Bierce, and Brooklyn Bridge engineer Washington Roebling, among many others.

The Middle East War Maps: IRAQ

I have been watching the Middle East region closely since about 1988. In 2006, I published a printed book called “Strategic Maps Atlas” on War and Strategic Maps. I drew Ethnic Maps of countries such as Near Middle East countries, Iran, Afghanistan among 16 Strategic Maps, which were also published as big posters. With the Arab Spring process, the Middle East has become a major conflict area. In these years, Web-based Interactive Map studies, which were based on Google API applications, started to become widespread. In Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen and Afghanistan, neighborhoods and cities were constantly changing hands between warring groups and maps were changing. So I started publishing a web-based Middle East Map. According to the political and military developments in the countries, I was constantly updating this map. I was saving important developments in PNG, JPG format and posting them on my website as Picture. These map printouts have become a beautiful archive over time. I decided that this archive would be useful for Researchers and Scientists and published them in a book. I hope that the Middle East War Maps series will contribute to your work.
