Whilst LinesMan Western Front 1915-18 1:10,000 trench map product is the most popular, it should not be at the expense of this 1:20,000 trench map product. In the words of Lieutenant Colonel Ewan Jack, Maps GHQ, BEF, a key figure in Great War cartography, "The 1:20,000 was the map commonly used by the Artillery, and as trenches could be shown on it in sufficient detail to be of use to the infantry it was the most useful scale of all, and the one that could least easily be dispensed with."
