Scott Addington brings us a new way of looking at the decisive battles of the First World War through a series of infographic (information graphics) postcards.

These ten wonderfully produced postcards have been designed to give the reader access to key information about each battle by using this easy-to-read format.

Using these cards the reader is able to quickly receive facts and figures in context through each of the rich visuals on each card. They are perfect for those who struggle to retain key information about each battle and would be a useful aid to supplement your knowledge about the Great War. A quick glance at the cards gives you the ability to see patterns and trends that would otherwise require in depth study.

The cards are double-sided and on the reverse of each card you will find a ‘Did you know?’ section with more contextual information about each battle. You will also find quotes from eyewitnesses which are fascinating to read and give you a real sense of what it was like to be there.

At 20cm x 20cm the postcards are large enough to be used as visual aids when discussing the war with others and the quality of the card and print will give you the confidence that they will last for many years to come.

The author states that they were designed for use by teenagers although I would disagree and say they will benefit anyone with an interest in the War.  I will caveat this with recommending further reading about each battle to fully understand the underlying themes and concurrent events that were influencing the decision makers of the time but as a jumping off point, and this is what the cards are designed for, they are  a very worthwhile resource and tremendous value for money.

Ten Infographic Postcards are available to buy from Amazon now.
