Map of Foy and Surrounding Area

From time to time I receive requests for map images. I decided to post this one for anyone to download. It covers the area surrounding Foy, including Bastogne and several other significant hamlets that figured int eh battles that surrounded Bastogne. It’s a large file so be patient.

This has been digitally stitched together from four different maps. The grid coordinates don’t always mesh up properly, so I had to do a slight bit of stretching here and there to get this to work. Please use this map for whatever purpose you see fit.

 

Happy New Year!!
