so I (germanfag) just found this atlas from 1939 an thought I'd share it's contents with you.
I'll dump some general maps, you can tell me other maps/ parts of the world you'd like to see up close and I'll post em
I've got an atlas from the late 20s/early 30s as well that features not only maps of the german colonies, but even goes as far as marking the 1914 borders with fitted lines on the Germany maps
It's not, it's supposed to be part of the Reichsgau Danzig-Westpreußen.
The color is used for all of Prussia, the only reason it's colored in while the other parts of the gau aren't is because it was annexed (one day) prior to Polands division
Still open for requests.
There are quite a lot of maps on Germany and Europe
Im not German but I'll do my best to roughly translate. I had a drink too so Germans, please don't judge.
>even though the political world changed a lot in 1938
>something about 1939 being changing as well (Slovakia, Böhmen and Mähren, the Memellanden, Danzig)
>not only Europe, the Turkish territories have changed as well
>that's why it was necessary to review our atlas
>special thanks to Dr. Erwin Kosinna (geology and geography), Dr. Schrameier (redaction [?] and economy)
>weare happy to see this work to evolve to an actualised world atlas, ready to be used for your studies and daily use
A really rough translation, though correct (I assume).
No problem bruh I'm fluent in nazi babble
>The geopolitical changes in 1939 were even more significant than those of 1938
>the slovakian declaration of independence, 14. March 1939
>the establishment of the reich protectorate of bohemia and moravia, 16. March 1939
>Reunion of the Memel area with the Reich, 23. March 1939
>reunion of Danzig with the Reich, 1. September 1939
>Collapse of the Versailles state of poland in September 1939
>but there were territorial changes in other parts of the world as well, for example the return of Hatay to turkey
>Because of this, the maps and texts in this atlas had to be heavily edited
The rest is basically just an usual preface, they credit some of the co-authors for their work and stuff like that
Now for some stats about colonial empire
First, the netherlands
>tfw alsace lorraine still belongs to you but nobody will listen
>from hamburg to new york in only 6 (six) days
>implying steam isn't the fucking future
