How WWI Changed the Map of Europe

A New York Times feature, The Great War: A 100-Year Legacy of World War I examines the lasting effects of WWI around the world through a series of articles. It also includes links to view some of the New York Times articles published during the war in the amazing New York Times Times Machine archives.

The whole feature is headed by an interactive map which allows you to view the map of Europe before and after WWI and the map of Europe as it looks today. These three views allow you to view how the country borders of Europe looked before the war, how they changed immediately after World War I and how the map of Europe looks in 2014.
