1945 map[edit]

I've added a map of the world showing the 1945 situation. This is an important part of the history of the Permanent Five - the fact that they all were at the time great colonial powers is perhaps the only reason why they ended up being the permanent members. But I am afraid that my map may not be fully factually accurate - I hope some connoisseurs of colonial history could amend my mistakes. And what especially complicated things was the British making all sorts of distinctions between their colonies - made zero sense to me. In any case, I hope you all like my map. --\color{Blue}\mathcal{M}\color{Blue}\vec{( e\ ,}\color{Blue}t ) = ? 14:13, 21 September 2012 (UTC)

Alaska should be dark blue in the second map, as it is part of the United States. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 143.231.249.141 (talk) 13:55, 2 October 2013 (UTC)
Alaska was a territory, not a state, until 1959. AnonMoos (talk) 19:11, 2 October 2013 (UTC)
