8th July 2022 - map and literature update
2
  • As always, in the process of year-long spring-cleaning, we managed to consolidate, to some degree, various small-scale German maps of WW2. Ultimately, all irregular and joint editions of 'Übersichtskarte' and 'Operationskarten', 1:1 mln scale, ended up in one list. We will not create an index sheet though. The maps were compiled for various military compaigns, so individual sheets overlap significantly. Some of those irregular editions are mentioned in the original index sheets which are available below the map list.

  • On the subject of index sheets, we have added another few dozen of original German index sheets, they can be found below individual map series.

  • And finally... courtesy of a person who wished to remain anonymous, we managed to scan unique brochurers called 'Kartenbriefe', issue 20 - 29, with an overview of developments and progres in German war-time military cartography. Some brochures are short of index sheets, as they were re-used by US and British post-WW2 military cartography services and libraries. Fortunately, we managed to link a few loose index sheets in those brochures to one of the last of them, i.e. Kartenbriefe Nr 31. So, for a completed package, we miss only the first few isues of Kartenbriefe. By the way, here's the shortcut to the pdf files. And, a marginal note on Kartenbriefe: the issue of April 1943 included samples of a German 1:25,000 experimental photo-map (Bildplankarte) from the area north of Kyiv, Sample 1, Sample 2. A few other sheets of this photo-maps are available on this list under the name of 'Bildplankarte'

Hello Marek. I am referring to the Ossada settlements created by Marshal Pilsudski in the Kresy after the 1920 Polish-Soviet war. I am hoping that there exists a map showing the location of these Ossa
