Military Maps of the Balkans

We have discovered online Military Maps of large parts of Europe prepared for the Military authorities of the Austo-Hungarian Empire.
We were told about them by Kroum N Batchvarov.  They show much of South Eastern Europe at 1:200,000 scale and is believed to have been compiled by the Austro-Hungarian General Staff.

It is a vast resource and various parts of the matrix were drawn between 1875 and the 1930’s.

You can find this large scale military map of Southern Europe here..
