Scarce, separately issued, German-language map of the Eastern Front, during the earlier part of Operation Barbarossa, the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union.
The map was intended to show the major progress the German military had made in the invasion of the Soviet Union, which began on June 22, 1941, as noted. The map demonstrates the progress of the invasion after three months of fighting with a further update to the 24th of September. Of course, with the start of winter, the progress was arrested. The Germans reached the outskirts of Moscow, but could not capture the city. More advances were made in the south, to Stalingrad - seen on the far right of the map - but that too would end in disastrous defeat.
The map was printed by Rotaprint's Vienna division, apparently as a kind of promotional item for their proprietary printing method.
