ISBN: noisbn

Approximately 38 by 27 ¼ inches. An aerial photograph map depicting the Z.W. Louvemont-Bras, including roads and land features. Printed Geheim, or Secret on the upper right corner. Reads "Diese luftbildkarte gehort zum Stellungsabschnitt und ist beu Truppenverschiebungen an den Nachfolger abzugeben." Presumably a map issued by or for the German Army during World War I. Louvemont perhaps refers to the small town that was obliterated after the Battle of Verdun in 1916, rendering the region uninhabitable. It was left that way as a memorial, called "a village that died for France" (see Wikipedia). GOOD condition. Many horizontal and vertical fold creases. Some soiling, minor to moderate staining (mostly to the blank side) and browning. Minor chipping and creasing along the extremities, with a few tiny holes along the various fold creases.
