Available Now or Coming Soon

This is an addition to the The British In Africa Maps Collection, which is one of a number of collections containing maps, charts and images of battles, campaigns and wars, initially involving the British during the reign of Queen Victoria. There is also an accompanying series of books detailing the military exploits of the British Army and Navy during the same period. Included in both will be the Crimea, India, Egypt, China, Africa and Afghanistan.

Later collections in this ongoing series will cover the two world wars amongst other conflicts, as well as histories of the British Army and Navy.

About These Maps & Images

These maps, charts and images have been sourced from late-C18th and early-C19th texts about the specific battle, campaign or war or about the area, era or nation(s) involved.

About Matomaton

I've long been fascinated by military history, and have gathered together a significant collection of military maps and naval charts that I hope will be of use to other wargamers.

If there's a particular period, war or nation that you would like me to cover in a future collection, please let me know, and I'll do my best to make one available.


These PDF files may not be resold or redistributed. If you are interested in using copies of the individual maps for use in commercial projects, please contact me via my website.
