The Life of Norman Bethune

Roderick Stewart and Sharon Stewart

Three period maps, Spain during its civil war, and China during the Japanese occupation.

Spain, October 1936 to February 1937

Madrid is not shown as the capital as this was in flux during the war. The non-capital cities are also shown with the same size dot at the request of the client.

Bethune's Journey from Hankou to Wutai, February-June 1938

As with Spain, Beijing is not depicted as the capital during the occupation.

I added relief to this map to show the change in the landscape between Hebei and Shanxi provinces.
