Table of Contents for the Wolchow Kessel Operational Battle Maps:
- Wolchow Kessel Battle Maps from May 22 to July 7, 1942. 48 Maps in this grouping. The originals of these maps can be found at the National Archives in Record Group 242, Lage Ost Maps, Box 17: 26 May - 27 June 1942 and Box 18: 28 June to 17 July 1942. These maps show the Battle of the Wolchow Kessel from an operational perspective.
- Two Misc. “hand drawn” XXXVIII. A.K. maps. Original locations at the National Archives in T314-905-1234 and T314-905-1245.
- One 58. I.D. Reporting Sectors Map. Original location at the National Archives in T315-996-1489. Even though this map is not an “operational level” map, I included it as it gives the reader/researcher a good idea of where all of the various corridors/Schneisen were located. It also identifies some other locations that were found in the XXXVIII. Korps reports, but are not found on any of the other maps in this set (i.e. the Kastenwald, the Polistj-Bach Lichtung etc.)
- Four tactical level maps covering most of the Kessel area (devoid of any tactical markings).
54 maps total. These maps cover Volumes I through V of the Battle of the Wolchow Kessel in Primary German Documents. With the publishing of Volume V of the Battle of the Wolchow Kessel in Primary German Documents, we will publish the remainder of the tactical level battle maps.
The maps from groups 1, 3 and 4 use scans of the original German tactical/operational level maps as the background map. The unit symbols and front lines were then superimposed onto these original German maps. The maps from group 2 were “hand-drawn” from the originals in the archives.
The maps from groups 1, 2, and 3 were designed by Tom Houlihan from Mapsatwar.com.
