The Seven Years' War Project now offers free access to 2,460 articles and 4,006 images.

Hint Thanks mainly to the efforts of Tony Flores, we are currently improving the quality of many maps and adding new ones. Some of you might not know that the maps with the highest resolution are not displayed by default. So to get these high resolution maps, please use the following example:

  • in the main article, click on the map, this will display a page containing a map with a higher resolution
  • just below the map, check for the links identified as Other resolutions and click on the highest resolution offered

...you'll be surprised by the quality of these maps, especially for those published recently.

You can even synchronize views of modern and old maps. A must see!

From April 11 to 17, we have created/improved the following articles:
