DUE TO THE LARGE SIZE OF THE CHERBOURG MAP IT CAN NOT BE ROLLED INTO A CARDBOARD TUBE SO IT WILL ALWAYS BE FOLDED MULTIPLE TIMES AND PLACED IN A CARDBOARD ENVELOPE TO PREVENT UNWANTED DAMAGE.  IF ORDERED WITH OTHER MAPS, ALL THE MAPS WILL BE FOLDED IN THE SAME MANNER.
Reproduction "Cherbourg-valognes" map in 1:100,000 scale.  These maps were the most common maps issued to all paratroopers (enlisted or officers) prior to the D-Day invasion..  This is one of the only period maps that shows the geographic location of not only the drop zones/landing zones for the American airborne forces but also both American landing beaches.

These reproductions are made from scans of the original maps and maintain the same size, color, and scale of the originals.  The grid squares maintain their original size and can be used accurately with modern or vintage protractor tools.  They have been color printed on one side of 20LB bond engineer paper leaving the back of the map white.  

Whether folded and creased to fit in a pocket or map case for field use kept flat to be framed for static display these maps will make great additions to any collection. ​

These maps (when purchased with other paper items) will be shipped in a 2" wide cardboard tubes. The Cherbourg map specifically though is folded once to fit in the tube as it is a rather tall map.  When purchased with any other item that cannot fit in a 2" shipping tube the maps will be folded several times and shipped in a regular package.  Please note, that like all paper items, these maps may have small folds or imperfections, these are to be expected and are not considered "damaged" and are not eligible for returns.​​
