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 the digital versions from the atlases printed by the United States Defense Printing Agency.

We gratefully acknowledge the accomplishments of the department's former cartographers, Mr. Edward J. Krasnoborski, Mr. Frank Martini, and Mr. Raymond Hrinko. For permission to reprint these maps, please contact LTC Frederick Black at 845-938-4274 or frederick.black@westpoint.edu .
