Edward Tufte's - March to Moscow

Edward Tufte's  - The March to Moscow

This is often considered the best statistical graph ever drawn.  The graphic depicts the fate of Napoleon’s army on its ill-fated Russian campaign during the winter of 1812-1813. The tan-colored band represents the march toward Moscow and the black-colored band represents the retreat back toward France...
Brilliant in its simplicity and clarity...
