English-born cartographer and illustrator Ernest Clegg had settled in New York before the outbreak of World War I, but returned to Europe to serve as a captain in the British Army during the war. He then returned to the U.S. and established himself as a successful illustrator and maker of pictorial maps. This is probably his best known map, and was published both as a folding map and a rolling map.
