Berlin: Abteilung fur Kriegskarten ... [15. August] 1940. 6 inches x 8.5 inches (15 cms x 21 cms). An extraordinary 450-page book containing some 380 half-tone photographs, printed both sides, of coastal towns and locations on Britain's South coast plus 40 maps annotated with landing conditions (flat coast, steep coast, cliffs, beaches, etc). In near immaculate condiiton, stapled as issued in original green wrappers, faint library cancellation library mark on top cover, with an additional shelf label. This work was issued in Berlin in 1940 as a major cornerstone of Militargeographische Angaben uber England (effectively translating as Military/geographical Report on England) by Abteilung fur Kriegskarten und Vermessungswesen (Department for War Maps (Department for War Maps and Surveying), and was intended Nur fur den Dienstgebrauch! (For official use only) by the Generalstab des Heeres (German General Staff). This volume, arguably the most important of the German invasion documents for Unternehmen Seelowe (Operation Sealion), the invasion of Britain by large-scale troop landings along the South Coast, beare the Abgerschlossen am 15.August 1940 (Corrected to ...) date, immediately prior to the intended September 1940 invasion. In short, this extensive book of photographs and maps was prepared for high ranking military planners, officers and their staff within the top echelons of the German war machine in Berlin. Difficult to find, particularly in as nice and unmarked condition as this. (Price includes postage UK)
