Abstract

Walk on large, laminated tactical pilotage charts, each at a scale of 1:500,000 (eight miles to the inch) and measuring approx. 3½ x 5 feet, so you can gain a better sense of the geographical layout of the Middle East and Mediterranean region. The maps show cities and towns as well as principal roads, railroads, rivers, bodies of water, distinctive landmarks, spot elevations, contours, elevations tints, and stream-drainage patterns.

See the Middle East in a way that you have never looked at it before!
