With the outbreak of WWII on December 7th, 1941, everyone in the United States was affected in one way or another. Those who sent loved ones overseas needed to know where their fathers, sons, and daughters were stationed and needed every means to keep track of them. Sometimes nicknamed Homeland Maps, they became a big part in seeing where loved ones were stationed.
Today I'm offering a bright colorful Map which gives a view of the countries where fighting was taking place. The Map is dated 1943 and is called "The Premier Map". This is one of many maps made by the Geographia Map Company and produced by the Alexander Gross, F.R.G.S. of New York.
This is a very large map that measures 44" x 32" that is exquisitely colored showing prominent boundaries with 300 flags of the warring nations. The map shows Army & Navy movements. The colorful painting on the front of the map was drawn by Karoly Szanto. Inside the map in big red and white letters it reads, "Buy War Bonds, Buy a Share in America, Buy War Bonds". On the reverse side are detailed maps of the Aleutians, Europe, and the Pacific Ocean.
**Condition: Good Condition; There is normal surface wear, a 4" round tan spot at the edge of the Buy War Bonds section, light edge wear, tiny pin holes along the edges from being hung up, and small tears along the folds of the map which have small pieces of tape keeping the tears from getting larger; There are also two small pieces missing along the edge(one of those missing pieces are on the front; Overall its in good condition for being 69 years old.
During WWII, this type of map would hang in homes and in Gas Stations, Schools, Store Fronts, Churches, Train Stations, and many other places with the hope that everyone could keep track of loved ones and what our Armed forces were doing in our Fight to Keep America Free.
A super piece of WWII memorabilia to give as a gift to a serviceman or woman that served in WWII or for a young member of our Armed Forces currently serving now. God Bless Our Vets!!!
