    World War 1 Map?

    I am trying to figure out if this map is a military map. Actually there are 8 of them. Kiev, Odessa, Serbia, and other central Europe, etc.

    Some of them say "Prepared in the Geography Department of the General Staff of the Army" if I am translating right.

    They all are titled "Operationskarte". Military operations?

    Kijew -> "Kiev".

    "...bearbeitet in den geographisches Abteilung den Kgl. Preuß. landesaufnahme" -> Prepared in the department of the Prussian King?

    Some of the maps say "nur für den dienstgebrauch" - does this mean it is "classified" information?

    They appear to be Operations Maps from 1915, but there is no classified information on them.

    The sheet would have been overlayed using a 'trace' (sheet of acetate type material) with military boundaries, routes / axis and objectives marked on it...........

    If you are into collecting military maps, can I suggest that you try to collect the silk escape & evasion maps that pilots used to be issued with................they are really interesting and are becoming quite valuable.

    I suppose the Japanese pilots were NOT issued such maps.

    processed in the geographical Department the Prussian Kings country survey"

    They all are titled "Operationskarte". Military operations? indeed - operation charts - for military use

    Kijew -> "Kiev". that was indeed the -old - german language translation for Kiev

    "...bearbeitet in den geographisches Abteilung den Kgl. Preuß. landesaufnahme" -> Prepared in the geographical department of country survey of the Prussian King?

    Some of the maps say "nur für den dienstgebrauch" - does this mean it is "classified" information? not neccessary, just for - official use only -
    There is no greater treasure then pleasure....
