Map of 1939 Europe

100790_036_3 copy

If you have been following my Blog you know that I read and listen to podcasts about WWII. Sometimes it is difficult to visualize the geographic relationships discussed. I came across this 1939 map of Europe that helps.
 
You often see references to the Danzig Corridor (aka Polish Corridor) and East Prussia. This map makes those references very clear. Seeing the separation, it is more understandable why Germany was so upset.
 
I have only a small copy of the image here. The map is by Diercke Atlas. Go to their website to see a much better copy of the map.


If you are interested in the WWII era of history, you may find these three pages of interest. 

  • The “World War II Sources” page is a constantly growing collection of more than 390 links to museums, memorials, websites, Facebook pages, Twitter feeds, and other sources with information on the World War II-era in history.
  • The “World War II Timeline” page expands almost daily and shows events leading up to WWII, as well as during the war. Events are broken down into the Pacific and European Theaters by date.
  • The About WWII page is a collection of links to posts that I have made over the years that are relevant to WWII.
