World-War II was a watershed in modern world history. Before it there was a world without nuclear weapons, a world where Britain - and its Empire that covered almost a third of the globe - represented the strongest of the world's superpowers, a world in which the Holocaust had not happened. Fifty years on those events still hold a fascination: the seizing of power by Hitler and the Nazis, the slowly building crescendo of annexations that led to Blitzkrieg, the conquest of Europe, the U-boat war, the strategic bombing campaign, the invasion of Russia, Stalingrad and D-Day, and the long German retreat to unconditional surrender. Historic Maps of World War II: Europe does not try to retell every point in the story of the war in Europe, rather it seeks to provide - through contemporary or near contemporary documents - a different view of the war and suggest avenues for further research. In over a hundred maps it looks both at the broad sweep of events - such as the invasion of Europe in June 1944 - and at details - such the two-man X-craft attack on Tirpitz - to provide a fascinating sample of how events during the war were mapped out. Maps and illustration were vital to the conduct of the war: before each military event there was the planning, the reconnaissance, the conjecture as to enemy dispositions; after the event there would be debriefing, analysis of success and failure , and a redrawing of maps to show new troop positions and boundaries. All the maps illustrated in this book have been drawn from the large collection held by the Public Record Office (PRO) at Kew in west London. This is the major holding of all public documents in the United Kingdom. The maps are derived from a number of government departments and reflect the interests and concerns at the time they were drawn. All the maps have their PRO reference number at the end of the caption to facilitate further research
