Description


You are bidding on a SUPERB and VERY RARE 1944 1:1000000 German OPERATIONSKARTE WEST (Western Operations Map) as used by both Fighter Pilots, Flight Crews, Ground Personnel and Tanks crew for navigation.  This map covers most of Western Europe and the Southern part of Great Britain, and measures a MASSIVE 41″ x 54″ size!

 

Made of heavy paper, and published by the Oberkommando der Heer, this map is in EXCELLENT condition for its age, and covers Western Europe and Southern Great Britain.  Dated October 1944, it indicates various locations of lakes, seas, towns, villages, cities, and elevations.  The specific map includes Germany, Austria, France, Italy, England, Belgium, Luxembourg and Switzerland.  Major cities include London, Wien, Florence, Munich, Paris, etc.  Also features longitude and latitude degree markings.  “Deutsche Heereskarte” (German Army Map) is marked at the corner, as well as Nicht für die öffentlichkeit bestimmt! (Not for the General Public!).  There is also a warning that I have never seen before that indicates:

A large quantity of these were found in an German attic, and as such, they do feature some slight wear, folds, creasing, small tears, and water stains due to humidity and storage.  One of the largest maps I have seen, it measures approx. 3.5 x 4.5 feet in size.  Would look AMAZING framed!  A VERY RARE and FANTASTIC addition to any collection, display, or simply as a conversation piece!  


Please note that as I have multiple quantities, the map you receive may look slightly different in condition than the one depicted in the auction photos.

——————- TERMS OF SALE —————–

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.
