Marion's newest acquisition from Ebay! Just won this last night.

 

Here's the description on Ebay

 

Who else but Rand McNally could come up with a "War Map of Europe" in 1939? This is not a map to be used for driving...unless you are Panzer Grenadiers and Nazi Armored Divisions preparing to assault The Maginot Line in the Spring of 1940! This very interesting full color map is a wealth of information about the military strengths and/or weaknesses of the major players in WWII in the very early days of the war (Guess who was the Weakest?). There are lists which document the number of Submarines, Army, & Air Power each nation had at the time, both in standing and reserve forces. Another drawing gives you a "slice" of The Maginot Line that names every section by function. Look at the picture that shows The Western Front....The Maginot Line and The Siegfried line stand opposite each other like the Offensive & Defensive lines of 2 Football teams in 1939! When unfolded, the backside is a Full Color 26" X 20" map of Europe. A unique addition to any WWII collection!

Funny thing is, I was bidding for an item which belonged to a friend, and didn't even know it. Item bought from non other than Dogdaddy! :woof:
