No idea how good they are, or how much delivery costs, but for a WW2 wargame (e.g. Turtledove-inspired) they might be useful.

Ages ago someone on my flist was looking for a map that would show coastlines after various amounts of flooding. Now armb has found something. Edited slightly:

http://flood.firetree.net/ combines Google maps with elevation data from the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission to draw maps of raised sea levels. The default is a seven metre rise (corresponding to Greenland's ice cover melting). Via http://www.worldchanging.com/archives/004230.html. And, while we're on the subject Arctic, Antarctic Melting May Raise Sea Levels Faster than Expected (via http://www.greencarcongress.com/2006/03/polar_melting_m.html).
