Maps of Ukraine - this website that has 1:100,000 topographic maps of the Ukraine. These maps are dated 1942 and show villages that had less than a thousand people at the time. We were really impressed with the detail that could be seen in these maps. http://www.lib.berkeley.edu/EART/maps/ukraine/ukraine.html
