Interesting they refer in the key to the "Allies" as "United Nations".

Here's a wartime poster: "This poster is important because it represents the origins of the United Nations as a wartime alliance (before it was a concrete organization)."

"During December 1941, Roosevelt devised the name "United Nations" (UN) for the Allies of World War II, and the Declaration by United Nations, on 1 January 1942, was the basis of the modern UN.[1] The term United Nations became synonymous during the war with the Allies and was considered to be the formal name that they were fighting under."

Also interesting to see the old borders, for example Finland was much bigger back then.


The poor paper quality is probably because it was wartime. Good paper was in limited supply like everything else.
