These two maps arrived in my Facebook timeline on consecutive days. My immediate thought was how similar they looked with the red dots and the sheer quantity of explosions over whole cities. I’ve been thinking recently about the different ways that combatants bodies are implicated in e.g. WW1 in comparison with drone warfare, but these maps reveal an opposite trend, from aerial bombing of WW2 to car bombs deployed on the streets by people.
