MAPS: Air-Raid Maps of Japan

Drawings of Air-raid damaged Sites of 1945

"Drawings of Air-raid damaged sites of major cities in Japan was prepared in December, 1945, by Records Department of First Demobilization Ministry to notify outline of Air-raid damage to repatriates. The foreword of the document mentions the importance of this survey and necessity of making quick adjustment after finding that the first question asked by repatriating military personnel and civilian employees of the military landing on Japanese shores was generally about Air-raid damage."
