Description

This map of the Western Theater of WWII shows the complex route taken by the 818th Engineer Aviation Battalion between 1942 and 1945. Beginning with the unit’s arrival in Glasgow, the entire march can be traced across the Channel, through France, and into Germany. Small vignettes accentuate certain elements of the experience, such as notable landmarks and the names of transport ships.

Accompanying the map is a chronological list of the notable events of the campaign flanked by two figures; one standing at parade rest while the other informally holds a Marston Mat – a piece of perforated steel matting used to make temporary runways across Europe and the Pacific. Below him is the signature of the artist – L. Dupuis, publication year, and reproduction credit, which goes to the 925th Engineer Aviation Regiment.
