Publisher: Ottawa, ON : Sound Venture, 2016.
Edition/Format:   eVideo : Clipart/images/graphics : English
Summary:
If it wasn't for attaching cameras to First World War biplanes the Allies may have not won the war, Canada and the world would have taken much longer to map, and Google Earth might not exist. This documentary surprisingly reveals that the greatest tactile weapon of the First World War was not a "weapon" in the traditional sense. Rather it was made of paper ... accurate and reliable maps!
