Bulge Map Resources


Recommended Posts

A collection of online resources relevant to the "Battle of the Bulge" - with no M-47's with Balkenkreuz's painted on them in sight.

Good site for 1:25k period German maps along the border with Belgium and Luxembourg.

There's a good overlap here, with the previous site, with maps covering St Vith, Bastogne, Malmady/Stavolot and Aachen.

and some 1:25k

and a rather nifty site that compares GE images with period maps (thanks the Benpark for this one)

Does that assorted map list somehow indicate what battles we´ll see in CMFB? :)

I´d downloaded a hundred or so of maps from that site and found these beeing of varying quality, yet usable as overlay for CMX2 map making if properly prepared. Some include early postwar landscape changes, but also bits of terrain features the Nazis deleted for security reasons (military barracs and the sort). The Aachen sheet even got some updates from the allied with regard to the siegfried line and its remains.
