Following Germany’s capitulation in August of 1945, Allied powers divided the conquered Third Reich into four separate zones of occupation (one for England, France, the United States and Russia). The American Zone of Occupation was concentrated in the south, and its headquarters were located in the former IG Farben Building in Frankfurt am Main. As one can image, there remained a significant military presence in the city, and this English-language map was issued to assist with local transportation.

The verso includes simple outlines of several notable suburbs, as well as an index of military installations and facilities. The guide was published in 1946 by the 655th Engineer Topographic Battalion.
