Looking for Metz map

Post  mazzo on Sat Jan 17, 2009 12:58 pm

I saw references for a "Metz map" here and there, but never find if that map exists in the same shape as Meckel or Königgratz, and in 1/7500 scale.

Could someone gives me some info about it?

Looking for Metz map

Post  Martin on Sat Jan 17, 2009 1:24 pm

Hi Mazzo

The Metz map was redrawn & improved by Bill Leeson, from one originally published shortly after the Franco Prussian War.

It is a huge map, with 100 A3 sheets, so would fill a rather large room. It is ideal for k/spiel scenarios of course, as you only use some of the sheets at any one time. Bill published it in b&w 10 or 12 years ago.

He has since produced a colour version, but it is not currently in print. TwoFatLardies now have a publishing agreement with Bill, and are hoping to offer the colour version in the future.

I'll alert Richard Clarke of TFL to your interest.

Regards

Martin
