National Army Cantonments (World War I)

The text on the image (a page of text) has been converted to table format to speed up the time it takes to load this web page.

There were in all sixteen cantonments for the National Army and sixteen cantonments for the National Guard. Besides these there were officers' training camps and specials camps for the marine corps, the aviation force, and the reception of men whose training was completed and who were being concentrated immediately prior to being put on transports and sent to the foreign battlefields. A full list of the National Army and the National Guard cantonments with their locations and geographical distribution of the troops which were assigned to each will be of general interest: 

National Army Cantonments (Webmaster's note: There are 33 in the list.)

The Battles for Verdun

The Battles for Verdun - A map by Otto Kurth, 1916. Huge file size (28130 KB) so only the serious researcher should bother with it. It may "time out" on you unless you have a fast connection. It is only 100 dpi but very, very large. I'm unsure of the source since this map was found in a book that made no reference to it.
