    Hey there,

    I am looking for an original ww2 German or Soviet map which covers any area along the Vistula (Wisla) river in Poland.

    Any tips would be highly appreciated.

    Best,

    Nick

    You could try Ebay.de . They have quite a few maps there. However finding one fro mthe area you ar elooking for may need some patience. The ones I have are all from the West front.

    See this, select a square, choose a date, download the map. It will be enormous - can't be viewed in a browser properly, an external app is needed.

    Hi Skipper,

    Just found a map which shows a bit of the river around Bromberg (now called Bydgoszcz). That's good enough for me.

    Thanks again for your help.

    best

    Thanks for the milestone (that was a couple of years ago) and glad I could help with a hint for the map.

    Great to hear that, If you have a chance to post a picture or two , I'd love to see it, epsecially the German names of the Wartheland area.

    Excellent catch indeed. It's an official Heereskarte and I see you got it framed nicely too.
