    Disappointed, doesn't present the correct borders of Germany during WWII or pre WWII, I don't see Finland controlling the Petsamo, which it should if this map does take place before 1940, and if it doesn't take place before 1940, and it takes place after 1940, then the Soviet Union should have gained small portions of land on the Finnish border via the Winter War, which is not shown. The borders of Germany should include north-west Poland and Eastern Prussia, as well as Austria if this map takes place before 1939. This map presents the modern borders of the countries in WWII, with exceptions of the Soviet Union and Yugoslavia

      Hi Timothy_Alejado,
      Thank you so much for letting us know about this one. I'll ask our resource team to look into this as soon as possible! :)

      Other than that it's great, and by the way, make the countries north of Iran part of the Soviet Union, they weren't independent during the war, and were a target during Germany's attack on the Soviet Union, and I don't know if I'm right on this but on your map it appears to be water below Lithuania, my map is showing that area of water to be Germany's Eastern Prussia

      Hey there,
      Thank you. I've asked our resource team to look into this and to make any necessary amendments.
      Have a lovely evening! :)

      Hi there,
      Thanks for getting in touch and letting us know about this issue.
      As you point out, territory was constantly gained and lost throughout the conflict, so it is difficult to show the minutiae of border change in one map. This resource is instead intended to give a broad overview of the alliances that were in place during WWII.
      If you wanted to personalise the activity to a particular year or period within WWII, we have added a blank map version (available in the 'Alternative versions box' that includes a blank map you can use to make your own answer sheet. I hope this helps!

    Ideal for our topic clearly identified.

  • Oct 17th

    Nice resource but proved a bit confusing as there are missing borders between the Soviet Union and Finland and Turkey and middle Eastern countries (I can understand not naming the middle eastern countries in a European map but the Turkey border would be useful). In addition, as we had been discussing surrender of Holland and Belgium it was a shame that they did not appear on the map and instead seem to have been subsumed into France or Germany. A few amendments would make a nice resource into a much more useful one.
