Mapping Colonial Africa on the eve of World War II.
Nice map of European colonial possessions in Africa at the outset of World War II. The map is well-designed, using clear fonts and coloring to tell the story of the Africa Scramble, distinguishing between the interests of France, Great Britain, Spain, Portugal, Belgium, and Italy.
There is no date on the map, but the attribution of 1939 has been suggested because Albania is the same color as Italy, making it post-April 1939 annexation, but pre-August 1940 when the Italians took over British Somaliland.
