Iraqi Army maps have the universal elements you will find on military maps from around the world including a legend, identification of adjacent maps, grid to magnetic declination, scale, latitude and longitude etc.
Finding Iraqi maps in the collecting world is a difficult task. Like all items of any intelligence value, they were supposed to be turned over to S-2 (Intelligence) for exploitation. These maps probably were duplicates, found together, with no exploitable hand written information on them such as defensive positions, AAA positions, routes of travel etc. Because they had no such value, they were allowed to be kept as souvenirs after a brief in-field review.
They are large size maps. We will ship them folded as they were when I bought them.
The name of each map is printed in the top center of the map. This is the most prominent feature shown on the map such as a village, a river, a mountain, a river etc.
They each show the province and district in the upper left corner.
Latitude and Longitude are also shown at the corner of each map. This may help you in finding the area depicted.
Maps were carried only by those who had a need to know such as officers, senior NCOs, engineers, mortar, rocket and those who crewed indirect fire weapons, snipers, transportation personnel etc. Maps would be carried in mapcases, folded up in pockets and small pouches. They were to be safeguarded at all times and were not supposed to be marked up, lest they be captured.
Some of our maps have hand written Arabic on them or military positions marked.
They will shows signs of their age including yellowing and small tears on an edge and possibly at folds.
No Iraqi collection is complete without at least one captured map so make sure you pick up at least one today!
