Would you like to look at a WW2 era topographic map of Denmark?

Thankyou.
It undoubtly reveals the several bridges rised during the 30's, and for my local area, the new lines of the railway caused by the road/railway bridge crossing Lillebelt.
Though I have posted it earlier I'll reply with the photo-map done by Luftwaffe in 1944:

BTW: My regular national map choise on the web has the possibility of an aerial-photo function where one can swipe between present day and 1954, wich is quite entertaining.

Easy done, for two reasons:
- All the main German airfields have been used by RDAF since and most of them have attached a civil airport today, and as such known by Me in advance!
- Every single destination is specified with coordinates ;-)
However, it's interresting to read about the minor ones, not to forget the dummy-constructions!

.

However, the extended port of Fredericia constructed from 1934 and opened on july 6th 1939 isn't to see!
Beside I find several failures in the texted designations. One easy to explain is in the attached picture:
The main road in brownish colour have the designation 'prinsens port' above, however Prinsens Port are the town gate (through ramparts) wich is situated at the rightmost end of the brownish road!
