You are bidding on a SUPERB 1940’s 1:1000000 German Heereskarte (Army Map) as used by both Fighter Pilots, Bomber Crews, and Army personnel for navigation. This map is titled “Textoplatkarte mit Jägernetz” (Plastic Navigational Map with Hunting Network Grid), and covers the area of Krefeld, Germany. It measures a MASSIVE 38″ x 41″ (96cm x 104cm) in size! This is a vet bring-back, along with the Luftwaffe map I have on auction.
This map allowed the pilot or ground personnel to properly calculate his path. It is made heavy laminate cloth.
Made of heavy laminate cloth, this map is in EXCELLENT condition for its age. It measures a approx. 3 feet x 4 feet in size, and covers Germany. Deutsche Heereskarte is written at the top, and overall it includes Germany, Denmark, and parts of France with towns such as Berlin, Krefeld, Dresden, Magdeburg, Hannover, Munster, Bremen, Nurnburg, Augsburg, Nancy, and others! It indicates various locations of lakes, seas, towns, villages, cities, airfield, and elevations. Also features longitude and latitude degree markings and Jägernetz Grid. The map side was produced by the Generalstab der Heeres (OKW), and features some hand-written markings around Krefeld. Captured by a US Army Lt. Colonel Francis C. Keith, it remains in SUPERB used condition, with only slight marks and wear.
A VERY RARE and FANTASTIC addition to any collection, display, or simply as a conversation piece!

Most of my items are vintage, and as such are AS-IS, so you must therefore expect a degree of wear due to age and/or usage. I will describe each auction to the best of my knowledge and take as many photos necessary to ensure you are pleased upon receiving your item. All sales are final, so please make sure your questions are answered to your satisfaction before you purchase.
——————- ABOUT ME —————–
Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft (Fw190, Me262, etc.), as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. As a private collector myself, I am constantly on the lookout for historical memorabilia, authentic photographs, artwork or anything unique relating to military aircraft.
