real map to match

Thu Mar 11, 2010 6:07 am

I am somewhat unfamiliar with the geography of central europe and none of the map filters really seem to properly orient me. Can anyone recommend a website or provide a link or something to a map of this area that I can print out to help...preferably a map drawn according to 7 yrs war period geography.

You mean geography? I think you dont need 18c map for it but if you are interested in political setup -> 1789 map of HRE - with some minor correction you can find out about 1756 borders in this area

There are some maps on the SYW, West Point or USMA Atlas, browse to the botton of the page

Yes, geography. I want to see where the rivers,mountains and towns are located... But mainly, as you corrected me, the political boundaries. I want to see the boundaries of Poland, Hesse,hannover etc. I think these maps will work as I just want to have one next to me while I play for quick reference.

Thanks for the links guys

Wikipedia has a decent political map (large and German!):

Here is a decent physical map that shows mountains and rivers at a quick glance:
