WW2 Maps sought


Recommended Posts



Does anyone have sources to the maps used in Egypt and Libya(Cyrenica, Tripolitania etc) 1940-43 especially minefield maps- this is for forthcoming expedition and required to plot old info on new maps etc.


Paper or electronic maps are fine

Have you asked the IWM? I've been into the map archive and there's thousands upon thousands of maps, which hadn't all been catalogued (last I heard they were desperately seeking volunteers for the map/books/photographic sections).


There's a bit of blurb here - http://collections.iwm.org.uk/server.php?show=ConWebDoc.1286&navId=00g006 but it doesnt really do the collection justice. It's without a doubt the part of the museum behind the scenes that made the biggest impression on me.
