The Original Strategic Map

The strategic map that I use is Frank Chadwick’s excellent Europa Map. One can (just) see a combination of the pinnacles of 20th century technology, talc sleeves, spirit pens and Sasco wall planner labels.

The map has now been spray mounted to a metal sign board and magnetic unit and formation markers have replaced the Sasco labels
