MAP OF THE MONTH – Europe Redrawn After World War I

By Armchair General

After World War I a series of treaties redrew European borders and created new countries. This animated map shows the geographic effects of each treaty.

Armchair General has partnered with The Map as History, a company that produces outstanding animated maps with accompanying narration. Each month, a link to one of their animated maps will be featured on the ACG site.

This month’s map explores the creation of the League of Nations and the redrawing of Europe’s map by the victors following the First World War.
