France 1942 Map

My thanks to Collins Bartholomew Ltd. for permission to reproduce their copyrighted 1942 map of France.  It was originally published by John Bartholomew & Son Ltd Edinburgh, probably on or before June 1942.  It was found in a pocket on the inside back cover of the book, France, published by Naval Intelligence Division, Geographical Handbook Series, Vol. 1, 1942.  To view the map in greater detail, click on it once, then, if necessary, click on it a second time.  Either click will provide a highly detailed view.  Using your mouse, you should be able to scroll up and down and drag the map from side to side.

  1. This a fantastic representation. Does anyone sell copies of it?

    Probably not, but you might be able to find one in the pocket inside the back cover of a used copy of the book, France, Vol. 1, Physical Geography, June 1942, Geographical Handbook Series, Naval Intelligence Division (UK), part of a four-volume set. If you find that volume at a used book store, make sure the map is in the book before buying it. has some copies of the book as of this date (10/18/14).
