About Our Atlases

 

In 1938 the predecessors of today's Department of History at the United States Military Academy began developing a series of campaign atlases to aid in teaching cadets a course entitled, "History of the Military Art." Since then, the Department has produced over six atlases and more than one thousand maps, encompassing not only America’s wars but global conflicts as well.

In keeping abreast with today's technology, the Department of History is providing these maps on the internet as part of the department's outreach program. The maps were created by the United States Military Academy’s Department of History and are in most cases digital versions of maps in the atlases printed by the United States Defense Printing Agency.

We gratefully acknowledge the accomplishments of the department's current and former cartographers, Mr. Edward J. Krasnoborski, Mr. Frank Martini, Mr. Raymond Hrinko, and Mr. Jeff Goldberg For permission to reprint these maps, please contact Mr. Jeff Goldberg at 845-938-2264 or jeffrey.goldberg@westpoint.edu
