Is it possible to request high resolution scans for certain pages ? Some of the maps are not quite of the resolution to make out some of the unit text.

You know that the maps can be opened in a fullscreen view?

Even with fullscreen, the map size tends to be too small for zooming in enough to read all the unit notations. Most maps are <2 MB in size.

That is surprising because the available Soviet maps at Pamyat-Naroda can run up to 300 - 600 Mb.

Our archival services are very brief when updates. Often they even don't make notice about new documents uploaded. silent about their specifications.

Hi,

As far as I can tell, nothing has changed in months.
