Barbara Taylor Mrs Barbara Taylor is a career drafts-woman, starting out in building services, mostly for hospitals, and for the first half of her working life this was on a drawing board with pen and ink. She joined the MoD, as a cartographer appointed to the team at the Army Staff College at Camberley. Since then she has drawn maps that have illustrated much of the output from Sandhurst, setting a standard for clarity. Her work includes the illustrations and maps for the British Army Guide to the Battlefields of the First World War and recent speaker, Mungo Melvin's biography of Manstein and his book on the battles of Sevastapol.  She is a member of the Battlefields Trust with a keen interest in the Wars of the Roses.
