This remarkable book tells the story of the Second World War through a selection of more than 100 contemporary government maps - some of them used in active combat and retaining notes by commanders and operational staff. Reproduced in full colour, they chart major operations from the evacuation of Dunkirk and Hitler's aborted invasion of Britain, through Stalingrad to the D-Day landings and the invasion of Germany itself. A narrative introduction sets these crucial primary sources in their historical context.
