Description

Fascinating color-printed newspaper map of Axis-held territory during World War II, highlighting the focus of Allied bombing on the Continent.

The map, published by the Chicago Daily Tribune, differentiates "Chief Military & Industrial Areas" of Germany, Germany's Allies, and Axis-Occupied Territory.

Lines are drawn from the general area of major British air force bases, and they are annotated with distance in miles.

The 1943 bombing of La Spezia was actually effected from North Africa, rather than directly from England.

The map was issued Friday, March 26, 1943.

Condition Description
Centerfold toned in upper half, with small split and loss at title.
