Response to Maps

I can tell you from personal experience in the U.S. Army, all modern maps are in color, due to different terrain features being represented by different colors. For example, water is blue, buildings and other man-made objects are black, vegetation is green, relief features and contour lines are brown, and roads are red, red-brown, or black (depending on how old the map is.) etc. Sometimes we would photo-copy a section of the map to pass out to all squad or platoon members, but the actual map was always in color. I've never seen a U.S. military map printed in B&W. These are current-day military maps, and I don't know about WW2 maps, but I would think they wold have been in color for similar reasons. Hope this helps
