  • Map - Where did it come from?

    Hi:

    The attachments are notations on a great map (1:100,000) of the area east of Stalingrad. I would love to get additional maps of the surrounding area. I am hoping someone can tell me where the map came from.

    Regards,

    John

      You get an A for this. That is exactly where the maps come from.

      Thanks very much.

        Sorry, I did not see your PS the first time I read your post. I located the rolls I needed on the 24.Panzer-Division and the XI Armeekorps, but ran into a wall trying to get the information for the dates I needed on the 6.Armee and the LI Armeekorps. After searching all the group guides without success, it occurred to me to take the roll numbers I acquired from citations in several books I had, and search for the rolls without using the guides. Voila, the rolls are there and the guides are incomplete.

        By the time I found the rolls and then did some research in the section containing German aerial photos, I was out of time for the day. One more day is $90.00 for a room plus food, so I had to head home--one of the benefits of being retired.

        I go back in two months for microfilm of aerial photographs (they were not ready yet) and I could look then. I know that is too late, but it is the best I can do.

        Regards,

        John

          I see....

          Well.... Maybe I'll ask another my friend. He visits NARA more often - once per month... I already asked him for aerials of that area.
          I'll tell you later...
