Hello,

Is there somebody who can give me informations, name of a book, website, contact,...

A 3D map is usefull to show the topography, like this :

[[ Only with a recent browser exemple Firefox, Chrome, ... NOT Internet Explorer
If the loader don't go to 100%, press F5 key to reload the page. ]]

Thks for help

Yves

There was a Osprey published about Villers Bretonneux. Obviously there is Mitchell's own account in "Tank Warfare". Certainly look at Heinz Guderian's "Panzer Leader", which gives an alternative to the British accounts and in my view is a more balanced and reflective perspective.

Try Mitchell's account from his 1933 book "Tank Warfare – The Story of the Tanks in the Great War"

Hi,

The beginning of the 3D map.

(Always with a recent browser).

Next : I have to make a timeline and more code to save locations.

Then, I'll create interpolations to animate tanks, frontline and describe the battle.
