So if someone would have asked me last week if i liked maps i would have said 'hell no!'. Yet i seem to have binged loads of videos on this channel over the last few days. The comedy mixed with facts and the ad skits are strangely intriguing. I may have become a map facts fan. Good Job with these videos! 😊

There is a great 1970s Russian map of Wellington NZ. It has every building in all the Quarters and the Parliamentary Precinct, all the companies that were in that building, and even little notes on what you could buy from shops at every location. Someone in the Soviet Embassy really really liked maps and spent a lot of time doing it, and updating it.

They do say the Russians have the best spies in the world. They even managed to get one into extremely high up in the Japanese forces during WW2 who told them they had no intention of invading through China. Freeing up a LOT of specially trained and equipped troops to stall and then drive back the German advance in the middle of the Russian winter

OTOH, I did read a story about Western made maps of Moscow being the best ones. That because the Russian messed with their official maps to avoid giving away intelligence (www.nytimes.com/1988/09/03/world/soviet-aide-admits-maps-were-faked-for-50-years.html). IIRC, it ended being so bad that diplomats in Moscow needed to use the maps provided by their own intelligence agencies (mainly the CIA) to do their routine functions, and the maps being leaked to everyone (including Russians with the right connections!) who needed to travel through Moscow.
