Fantastic World War II era navigation map of southern Africa, prepared by the British military for ground and air navigation in late 1943.

The map was compiled from four separate sheets cut and mounted together to form a larger image. The map covers parts or all of South West Africa, Bechuanaland Protectorate, South Africa, Basutoland, Swaziland, Rhodesia, and Mozambique.

Though far away from the front lines of World War II, southern Africa was of global geopolitical importance and required excellent maps, especially for newly emerging long-range airplane flights.
