'Operation Baytown' Original Invasion Map of Reggio Di Calabria, Italy
Super rare original 'Secret' invasion map of Reggio Di Calabria, Italy.  Used in the 'Operation Baytown' amphibious landing as part of the Italian campaign where many Canadian units earned the 'Landing at Reggio' battle honour with the 8th Army.  This may very well be the only surviving map from the landing as I currently don't know of any others, and is a really important part of Canadian military history. The map was published by the Geographical Section of the War Office in 1943 with the defence overprint dated 24 August 1943.  This map is combat carried and shows the expected wear and age. This is an important museum worthy map. *Sold*

Map of Pontecorvo, Italy 'Operation Chesterfield' Breaking The Hitler Line
Rare original SECRET combat map of Portecorvo, Italy, with defence overprint showing defences along The Hitler Line.  It is dated May 1944 for use in Operation Chesterfield, when the 1st Canadian Division would break through on The Hitler Line on the road to Rome.  This is a rare map with great defence overprint of deadly obstacles that the Canadian's would need to break through.  This is a true combat map for actual operations and not a tourist map or old city map. *Sold*
#CD358 "GET TOUGH!" How to Win in Hand-to-Hand Fighting
Original 1942 copy of "GET TOUGH!" How to win in hand-to-hand fighting by then Captain W. E. Fairbairn. This is an early wartime edition of the publication as Captain Fairbairn was later promoted to Major and the later additions were printed to reflect his promotion. Overall, this is an excellent light read copy still in overall sound and readable condition without any damage. Desirable publication, Captain Fairbairn was also involved with developing the famous Fairbairn-Sykes fighting knife also intended for hand-to-hand combat. *Sold*

#CD051 Map of ARNHEM 'Operation Anger' Liberating The Netherlands
Rare original combat map of Arnhem (West) used for the Canadian First Army's liberation of the city in 1945 as part of 'Operation Anger' to liberate The Netherlands. Second edition, this map was printed on the reverse of an obsolete map of Scotland with 'CANCELLED' across the obsolete printing.  The War Department was facing paper shortages during this period so they were re-using old maps and captured maps to get the latest printings to soldiers at the front as quickly as possible. This is a true combat map used for actual operations and not a tourist map or old city map. *Sold*

#CD048 Map of DELFZIJL 'Operation Canada' The Battle for Delfzijl Pocket
Rare original map of DELFZIJL first emergency edition for 'Operation Canada' also known as the Battle of Delfzijl Pocket to liberate this region of The Netherlands. This was the final battle of WWII that the 5th Canadian Armoured Division would participate in. The War Department was facing paper shortages during this period so they were re-using old maps and captured maps to get the latest printings to soldiers at the front as quickly as possible. This map was printed on a captured German map of Sonderausgabe! This is a true emergency combat map for use on actual operations and not a tourist map or old city map. Not only is this map for a notable operation, this map has a serious cool factor being printed on the reverse of a captured German map so it was actually used during WWII by both sides. *Sold*

#CD394 Map of Arnhem / Nijmegen 40 West
Original WWII map of Arnhem / Nijmegen 40 West, a famous battlefield location. This map would have been used during the Battle of Arnhem, and later in the liberation of the Netherlands.

Scarce and important map. *Sold*
