Original 1:20,000-scale map, 20" x 22", showing the entirety of the Pacific island of Iwo Jima. The name of the island appears at top, with the notations "Special Map" and "Advance Copy", while the bottom edge is marked "Confidential". The map clearly depicts the locations and types of enemy defenses, including artillery, anti-aircraft guns, bunkers, trenches, machine gun emplacements, radar installations, and radio towers, as well as the island's two airfields (with a third under construction), all explained by a "defense symbol key" at lower right. The publishing line states that the map was produced by the 64th Engineer's Topographic Battalion in November of 1944, from aerial reconnaissance photographs produced in August and September of that year. Shows original folds, else very good to fine.
