Description

Excellent "NavWar" pictorial map of the North Atlantic and Western European Theaters during World War II.

The map is a very effective persuasive piece, which sweeping arcs depicting Allied naval power in the Atlantic combined with its air power over Germany.

Along with the flood of bombers out of the British Isles is a note "The R.A.F. and the A.A.F. control the industrial heart of Europe from England, the world's most powerful air base."

The right of the map has a timeline of the development of the war in Europe up to 1943. At that point "Both the German submarines and the German air force operating in the North Sea area were brought under control..."

The so-called "NavWarMap" series was published by the Educational Service Section, Bureau of Naval Personnel, Navy Department, Washington, D.C. The Nav War Maps are some of the pictorial maps to have come out of World War II.

The NavWar series included the following maps:

  1. The Mediterranean
  2. The South China Sea Area
  3. World War II in the North Sea Area
  4. The North Pacific Area
  5. Southwest Pacific
  6. We Fight a Global War
