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.

Was informed that the framed map had a plexiglass cover but when I received it, there was no covering over the map.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
