A rare large size map of the Operation Barbarossa, the code name for the Axis invasion of the Soviet Union, starting Sunday, 22 June 1941.
The map shows the route of the 7th Infantry Division (7. Infanterie-Division), which took part in the surprise attack on the Soviet Union on the first day of the Operation Barbarossa. The troops marched from Warsaw to Moscow, which suburbs they reached by the end of November.
Although the Operation Barbarossa was a failure, and the winter of 1942, when this map was made, brought the first major defeat of the German Wermacht at the Battle of Stalingrad, this map was a part of the German propaganda, the Eastern front was progressing well.
