The road to Berlin: A Collection of 13 military Maps, the collection of a Captain G.W. Edick, annotating the route of his American Artillery Unit from Chartres to Germany, the route Circa 1944-1945, the maps 1941-1944.
A collection of 13 miscellaneous sheets of various scales (1:100,000 or 200,000), covering a series of missions around Rheims, and off to Strasbourg and finally up through France to Liege and across to Germany, just north of Duisburg.

A fine "used in the field" collection covering Western France, Central Belgium and Western Germany, most of military issue, but including two cut Michelin maps, all used to guide an Artillery unit across France, Belgium and into Germany, near Duisburg. The maps form into 3 groups; one of two maps unannotated of the coastal areas of Normandy, a second a maneuver from Valacienne south to Rheims over a 22 day period, and another longer track from Chartres north and west of Paris to Luneville then east to the German border North of Strasbourg, only to turn round and go back via Liege and Maastricht, and enter Germany north of Duisburg. The route marked in a red crayon line, winding around northern France and north through Belgium, and several sheets with various pencil notation on verso, and two sheets are signed by Edick. At the outbreak of World War II, artillery still needed to be moved around on road transports from position to position.
