Barrage Tiled Map

The creeping barrage was a key military strategy in the First World War. It was used successfully by the Canadians at Vimy Ridge, where the men had been extensively trained to move forward 90 metres every three minutes, keeping the infantry behind the advancing artillery barrage. This technique was made possible by detailed maps called barrage maps. Download this 49 page tiled map and this helpful guide to help students learn not only about the physical landscape of Vimy Ridge but also how the landscape influenced military strategy.
