German WW2 military intelligence and UK local history items: Town Plans

Each item below is an original plan of a town or city in the UK printed in the early 1940s and issued by the German Department for War Maps and Surveying (Abteilung für Kriegskarten und Vermessungswesen) within the German General Staff (Generalstab des Heeres).

They were prepared For Official Use Only! (Nur für den Dienstgebrauch!) for German military staff in Berlin in connection with their intended invasion of Britain (Operation Sealion) at the beginning of the second World War, and subsequently for troops preparing for the invasion.

These original German wartime town plans have immense historical significance as some of the few surviving remnants of World War Two German invasion material and also as scarce items of local history for the areas of the UK involved.


Original 1940s German WW2 military intelligence town plans of Britain now available:

All maps are either approximately 8" x 5" (20 x 13 cms) or 8" x 10" (20 x 25 cms).

The maps are printed both sides of the page.  Each side of an 8" x 5" sheet contains a single town plan, full page; each side of the larger folding 8" x 10" sheets contains either a single full page 8" x 10" town plan or two separate 8" x 5" town plans.

Although these original German 1940s town plans are scarce and are seldom offered for sale, we have a second copy of some of those listed here.

Click on any name to see a scan of the relevant town plan reduced or enlarged in size, depending on your monitor's settings.  The watermarked wording "www.GermanInvasion.co.uk ..." appearing in each scan is not, of course, on the original.
