This month we're moving on to WWII's Eastern Front and looking at the collection of German Situation maps.

This series consists of wall-sized maps which document the 1939 Polish campaign and the Soviet-German war from 1941-1945. They were created daily throughout the six year period of the war and were regularly reviewed by Adolph Hitler and his top military advisers. Identified on the maps are positions of German, Polish, or Soviet army groups. German and other Axis forces are indicated in blue. Polish and Soviet forces are in red. Topographic features are designated by color or standard symbol. Many maps feature handwritten notations on weather conditions, observed movements of Soviet forces, designated boundaries of occupied areas under German civil administration, and notes comparing German and Soviet strengths in units and armor in particular sectors.

Our goal is to use these maps to figure out how the Eastern Front moved from 1941 to 1945 with an eye to eventually animating this movement using the WikiWar platform.
