    Have you ever wondered why Maps representing different periods in history might be drawn in a way that does not make any absolute sense whatsoever This is a Journey Through time telling the story of how Cartography shaped History, how maps and the was we draw and interpret them changed as well as a stunning collection of representative maps for every Era in terms of warfare, starting in the 16 century up until the contemporary age of advanced technology.
