In the first 3 months of 1945, Allied troops were on the advance on nearly every front. Offensives in Italy, Austria, Germany, the Philippines, Hungary and Denmark were taking place between February and April and are reflected on this map, which was printed by the Shar-Barton company and issued shortly before Roosevelt’s death in late March or early April.

Numerous inset maps identify regional action in the Balkans, Germany and on the Philippine islands, while the underlying world map on Mercator’s projection gives a global overview of the ongoing conflict.
