UK (GSGS) MAPS
UK (GSGS) maps from II WW period (Lithuania territory)

Geographical Section General Staff - GSGS - during II WW in cooperation with USA AMS 1941-1944 published sets of maps in scale 1:100000 and 1:250000 covering (partially) Lithuania. Mostly maps prepared by GSGS were reprints of German and Polish maps (till II WW) without any changes. Only some additional information on margins was given.

Maps prepared by GSGS in scale 1:100000 cover East Prussia (set GSGS 4081) also and Klaipeda (Memel) district. Mostly maps from this set were reprints of German maps in scale 1:100000 (published in 1931-1937). Maps from set GSGS 4081 published in one color, were hard readable. Additional information on margins: translated topographic signs and symbols, scale in miles, information about adjacent maps.
