The digital collection Første Verdenskrig: Kort [Maps of the First World War] has been created by Det Kongelige Bibliotek in Copenhagen, the Danish national library. This collection contains some 170 maps made in Denmark during the First World War and during its immediate aftermath. There are seven sections. Four atlases deal successively with the 1921 border between Denmark and Germany (63 maps), the city of Flensburg (9 maps), four statistical maps for the province of South Jutland, and a general atlas of the Great War (20 maps). The other sections contain maps for Africa (2 maps), Denmark (9 maps) and Europe (78 maps). There are also some German and British maps with a clear propagandistic aim.
