A Fascinating collection of Allied Recon Photo's taken at critical times during WW2 together with a historians narrative. Really interesting! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

"More than 10 million military photographs are stored in The Aerial Reconnaissance Archives, or Tara. Most were taken by surveillance aircraft in World War II.

Here, military historian Ian Daglish, and retired Wing Commander Michael Mockford, explain the significance of just a few of the photographs from the war. "

Amazing stuff, but who has a time to go through all 10 million photos.

Ah, I just rememberd something.
When leaving Berlin I went to a TV Tower, but the shop that sells aerial (Ortophoto) pictures of Berlin in different stages of the war, was closed for maintainance.

Celeon, is there any chance that you could obtain those posters if you have some buisiness near Alexanderplatz?

It's inside the building (access to the elevator lobby) on the ground floor.
