I think those are part of the US Army map series. In the wake of WWII, the Army realized it might be called on to fight in all sorts of different places. So, they put together this series covering much of the world. To do that in a timely fashion, they incorporated maps from other sources (like British Admiralty charts), and incorporated recon flights and other updates.

In the US, you can find these at larger city libraries (like Denver) and university libraries (University of Utah and University of Colorado each have sets). U of U had a photocopier that could copy these, and I have a copy of all the maps for Greece.

I didn't know they were on the internet, though--that is really great! Good find!
