Description

This is a high-quality, medium-format Soviet era map of Syria. At the time of its publication, Syria and the Soviet Union maintained close relations, with Damascus relying on Moscow for military equipment and economic assistance.

This was also a time in which Syria began intervening in the Lebanese Civil War, beginning a decades long military occupation. The map includes a rich array of information, and three insets depict an ethnographic and economic breakdown of the country.

Condition Description

Excellent. Folding map with original covers.
