Never before reprinted, the Bigot Plans were prepared for the Allied Invasion in 1944, were classified Top Secret and issued under the highest level of "Need to Know". This small series of reprints are taken from the 1:25,000 maps and printed in colour, eg showing defences as Blue = confirmed, and Purple = not confirmed. They were catalogued under GSGS (Geographical Section General Staff) series 4347. We are publishing 3 of these maps initially. Others may follow if there is sufficient interest.
