Don't try this at home...



The above image shows the collapse of the Ottoman Empire to nearly-modern Turkey. The animation runs from 1870 to 1923 and displays British, French, and — eventually — Italian territories as the Turks decline. The original images were taken from the WHKMLA Historical Atlas - http://www.zum.de/whkmla/histatlas/asia/haxwasia.html - which may be the most useful collection of summary maps I have ever discovered.
