To answer some of your questions.
Color maps. Nope, they were all fimed in black and white. Back in the 1950's when they photographed all the material black and white film was cheap and color film was expensive. They went the cheap route.
Most of the large situation maps were chopped up, usually in quarters (but sometimes into 6-8 parts
). It makes it very difficult to piece them together, especially if you printed from an old microfilm reader/printer. The lenses would distort the outer parts so even if you kept the scale right you still ended up with distorted sides.
Mr Glantz's maps were reproduced on the old microfilm reader/printers and usually their paper reproductions were mediocre. I have one and it was actually one of the better ones and the prints were still so-so. The actual film images are pretty good.
The DVD reproductions look much better. I've printed several and that look much better printing through a laser printer.
I'll post an example below. I did make the mistake of shrinking the bytes a wee too much. The original image was 925 kb.
best regards, Bill
