I didn't see any maps for the battle I was looking for, can you help me?
- Yes. Submit what you are looking for in our "Contact Us" section and we will try to help locate a map that is right for you.
Why do some maps have unit movements and others do not?
- Recent wars, such as Vietnam, Iraq (outside of the 2003 invasion and Fallujah 2004), and Afghanistan have produced less large scale battles and more localized, smaller engagements. With South Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan having American units all over the country (i.e. no longer advancing like the Third Army did in WWII), very few engagements would have a map with "large blue arrows of advance." This is why many of our recent engagement maps are those similar to what the service members themselves would have had in their pocket while on patrol.es. Submit what you are looking for in our "Contact Us" section and we will try to help locate a map that is right for you.
Are there additional taxes on international orders?
- Yes. Customer is responsible for import and VAT taxes based on the country of delivery. These fees will be collected by the shipper once the shipment has arrived and are the responsibility of the customer.
