WWII Okinawa invasion maps

Recommended Posts

I just got these maps yesterday. They show Okinawa and the planned beach landings. It even shows gun emplacements, bunkers and other establishments. I thought that maybe the maps were ripped over age but I realized that it was done purposefully because they fit together perfectly to show the island where the troops planned to land. It's marked Secret on the top of the maps and the classification will be changed to restricted once in combat. In the group of maps there is a Japanese map of Okinawa which was captured by the individual who kept these maps. Honestly I haven't come across any maps like this before, so if anyone has info to add I would greatly appreciate it. Enjoy and stay safe!
