Soviet Tactical Defense Map of Voronezh District from the Archives of Marshall Konev, 1941
1:100,000 scale map with title translating to "General Headquarters of the Red Army. The Voronezh Region of the Russian Federation (Olkhovatka–Rossosh Districts). Second printing, 1941." It is marked "For Official Use." The map is hand annotated with defensive lines shown in blue pen and retreat routes in red.

In October 22, 1941, the advance of the German troops prompted the establishment of a defense committee in the city of Voronezh, for which this map was likely produced. In the event, it was not until June 1942 that German and Hungarian troops would mount an offensive to take Voronezh, resulting in a disastrous defeat for the Red Army.
