United Nations Map of the World.

This great map was created by L.G. Bullock and John Bartholomew & Son Ltd. Edinburgh in 1948.

In 1948, world peace was finally achieved after years of war which left a huge scar on every nation.? Some 200,000,000 people were displaced, 50,000,000 dead and entire cities and economies destroyed. It was at this time of healing and contemplation when the UN was born. A single entity?that would ensure world peace and encourage constructive debate between disputing nations. Their primary goal was to ensure a war, such as WW2, would never be allowed to happen again.

Since this time, the UN has clearly lost their way and perhaps forgotten why they even exist?
