    85 maps. -- Geography and Map Division, Library of Congress, Washington, D.C.

    Summary:

    The World War II unit route maps collection consists of maps created by individual U.S. military units commemorating and outlining their movements, engagements, and routes of travel during the second World War. The maps primarily depict historical and geographic landmarks and major events pictorially. Most maps were created by units of the U.S. Army at the division and battalion level, and many are undated, but presumed to have been created in or around 1945 at the conclusion of the war. Units operating in Western Europe -- particularly France, the Low Countries, and Germany -- have the most representation, with select maps depicting Italy, North Africa, the Pacific Ocean, the Philippines, and the Aleutian Islands. The collection consists of 85 unique maps.
