Biographical / Historical
These maps were used during the war. Italian maps captured by the LRDG proved of little use, being very inaccurate (see W.B.K. Shaw, Long Range Desert Group, pp.24-25) and the LRDG collected its own material which formed the basis for many of the 1:500,000 maps of Libya (D.78-D.93).
