1943 World Map, Framed
1943 World Map, Framed
(Based on 2 reviews)
Category: Maps/Wall Maps/Framed Maps

National Geographic published this classic world map in December 1943, in the midst of World War II. Compared to many of the other world maps by the National Geographic Society, this one has a decidedly dark cast, possibly a reflection of the tone of discouragement felt by many as the War continued. Features international boundaries as of September 1, 1939; alliances during WWI and WWII; classic colorization depicting mountain ranges and areas of high elevation; ocean currents; and time zones.

  • Choose from two frame colors to match your decor.
  • Please allow 2-4 weeks for delivery.
  • $10.00 oversized shipping surcharge will be added to your shipping cost.
  • Not available outside the contiguous 48 United States.
