First World War infographics

You can't move on the internet these days without someone trying to convey information using an infographic (and most of them are pretty awful to be honest). However newspapers have been using graphics to try and illustrate concepts to readers for a long time and in this fascinating gallery the Guardian newspaper republishes some of the infographics from the First World War (though in those days they were mostly known as maps and diagrams).

I particularly like the aviation graphics such as the one trying to show the Gotha bomber's gun turret.
