Overview

After World War II, the U.S. Army sought to create a record of its military operations in several series of books. Professional historians, cartographers, and other staff at the U.S. Army Center of Military History (CMH) accomplished the task, including the ten-volume series known as "The U.S. Army in World War II: The European Theater." In this series, the CMH drew on a multitude of records and recollections to compile a remarkably comprehensive and objective chronicle of the European phase of the war. Hundreds of maps, including oversized foldouts, were included in the text of the series as visual aids, and today they are recognized as some of the best U.S. military history maps ever produced. The 137 carefully selected CMH maps in the U.S. Army Atlas of the European Theater in World War II - collected here for the first time in one volume - are unique documents in the archives of twentieth-century warfare, making this a vital reference for anyone interested in better understanding the grand stage upon which the U.S. efforts to help liberate Europe in World War II were enacted.

The atlas of the ETO contains clear, color operational maps of the campaign in an oversized (coffee-table) size. It does lack coverage of Italy and other (British) movements though. The maps vary in scale but provide very good reference material for history buffs. The price makes it affordable and well worth the money.
