Reproduction "La Haye Du Puits" map in 1:50,000 scale.  This map was commonly used by battalion or regimental level officers/NCO's during the D-Day invasion for use in land navigation and tactical movements. 
This map is rather unique because it shows the geographic location of all the drop zones/landing zones as well as the objectives for the American airborne forces in a detailed scale (1:50,000).  

Keep in mind that geographic maps used in World War Two were not being made in relation to the tactical environment of the battlefield.  Most if not all cartographers (map makers) did not know where the D-Day invasion (or any other invasion) was going to take place so you often find that key objectives are split over several different maps.  That being the case officers and NCO's often carried numerous maps not knowing if their tactical movement would keep them on one map or move them across several maps.  

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 industrial 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 so that the maps remain flat and unfolded.  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.​​
