Maps of World War Two

Maps of World War Two. A history of the Second World War through maps. Includes critical battles, and campaigns such as Dunkirk, Barbarossa, Stalingrad, Kursk, D-Day, Normandy, Berlin, and others.

From the site:

Maps of World War II provides an overview of WWII through a collection of maps that present the battles and campaigns fought in the various theatres of war. The material is organized by theatre, in roughly chronological order. Most of these maps present operational level information. This is a general or admiral's point-of-view and should be treated as such. A single arrow represents the movement of thousands of men and tonnes of equipment. Topographical information is less relevant at this level and the maps included here do not generally provide such detail. This selection of maps gives the student of military history an appreciation of the operational situation at various significant moments in the conflict.
