British GSGS series 4326. These geological maps of France were originally published by the Depot de la Guerre in 1839. The sheets covering the northern and southern coasts were reproduced by the British during WWII to aid in their preparations for Operations Overlord and Anvil. These maps were essential for the logistics of suppy as they helped determine potential locations for temporary airfields, supply depots, sources of road construction materials, and the best overland transportation routes.
