Lage West Maps (German Situation Maps)

Hi:

I have just copied a little over 800 maps including Lage West June 1944 - March 1945; all of Lage Holland (5 maps); two months of Lage West OB; and 7 months of Lage Frankreich. The maps are all from NARA. Now the hard part will be processing the maps through Photoshop.

I have published June and July 1944 on my FTP site at https://www.onlinefilefolder.com/4fw6UOwxhIPoMG. All of the maps can be downloaded. The file sizes average between 60 MB and 100 MB. They are in TIFF format.

Lage Ost maps for all of 1942 can be found at https://www.onlinefilefolder.com/1fDg9R1oNAU1n0.

Regards,

John

What Herculean work!! Scanning all those and taking the time to upload!

Thanks for that. The German maps are brilliant- showing elevations, contours and such. Perfect for scenario design.

German Situation Maps

Thanks for the kind words.

In October or November I will be copying all the Lage Ost maps for the first six months of 1943.

If you don't mind, John, I've linked your site on the BattleFront web community board. The scenario designers will love these. I see that the German maps show elevations and ridge lines. Very useful, that.

German Situation Maps

Not a problem. I hope the maps will help. There are also Luftwaffe aerial photos of cities in Eastern Europe and Russia. As an example the photos of Stalingrad were used to provide information on the city landscape in the development of the game "Heroes of Stalingrad".

Map updates?

Are there any updates to the maps John?

They are very good in detail and I have looked at everyone.

Thanks again for what you have done for us.
