Military Map of South-East Asia, c. 1965

This a very interesting map from the Cultural Revolution period. Firstly, it is devoid of any references to Chairman Mao, which adorned other maps during the period. Secondly, it is not an map that was ever offered for sale, but rather one used exclusively by the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA).

The map gives details about four countries: Vietnam, Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia. Details include main rail lines, rivers, roads, weather patterns, lines of control, shipping distances between Chinese ports and other ports (marked in the Chinese unit li and kilometers) and main US bases in Vietnam and Thailand.
