OLD D-DAY MAPS
The Bigot Plans
Never before reprinted, the Bigot Plans were prepared for the Allied Invasion in 1944, were classified Top Secret
and issued under the highest level of "Need to Know". This small series of reprints are taken from the 1:25,000 maps
and printed in colour, eg showing defences as Blue = confirmed, and Purple = not confirmed. They were catalogued under
GSGS (Geographical Section General Staff) series 4347. We have published three of these maps, covering important areas of the D Day landings.
40/16 NW Ouistreham - Pegasus Bridge 1944 - publ 2004, intro by Tony Painter.
This is our first reprint in the series and covers the area around the bridge that is now known as Pegasus Bridge.
It was the scene of the heroic glider landings that have been called "the greatest feat of flying of WWII". The map is double-sided
and covers the area from Ouistreham in the north, southward to Herouvillette, and westward to Cazelle.
34/18 NE St Pierre du Mont - Omaha Beach 1944 - publ 2004, intro by Tony Rosser.
Our second map covers the coastal area around Pointe du Hoc and Vierville-sur-Mer, where much of the Omaha Beach
landings took place. On the reverse we include the Defence Legend, showing the various cartographic symbols used.
40/18 SW St Aubin - Sword & Juno Beaches - publ 2004, intro by Tony Painter.
Covers the area north of the Ouistreham map including St Aubin, and Langrune-sur-mer, including parts of the landing areas
known as Juno and Sword.
Here is a small extract from the first map.
The D-Day maps are meticulously scanned and colour-printed.
