Atlas of France - follow the armies after Waterloo

Take a close look how the Allied armies advanced through France after their victory in the battle of Waterloo, by visiting the online collection of the Cassini atlas of France. 

Highly detailed maps made by the Cassini family in the 18th century of France, more in particular by César-François Cassini and later his son Jean-Dominique Cassini, provide you an excellent idea of the countryside, the towns and villages, the roads and river crossings and fortified places. Updated versions were still in use in 1815. 

These maps will surely help you follow our history on the invasion of France due in Volume Four next year. Take a look at the Cassini maps right here.
