In honor of this being the 75th anniversary of Operation Market Garden here are 4 of my tactical 1:25,000 maps where the 101st Airborne DZ are located.  Each one shows consistent field use but are in fine condition attesting to the fine quality paper that was used for these GSGS maps.  The maps are dated Sept. 44 and were produced for the Market Garden Operation  These maps have hand written notations regarding positions.  Two of the maps have the hand drawn tactical marks connecting the margins of each map. They were found in a Map Case just north of Nijmegen after the war.  The Map Case was well used buy the family children as a school book bag for some years.
