Looking for specific World War II maps.

I'm trying to find some specific government-produced maps of Allied progress in Western Europe in World War 2 that I saw online once.

A couple of years ago I found this series of images online and I can't remember where. It was a bunch of maps showing Allied-controlled territory in Western Europe at twice-monthly intervals (probably the 1st and 15th of each month), from D-Day to the end of the war, with Allied territory in red, obviously growing larger and larger on each map. They were scans from some U.S.-government-produced report created shortly after the war, or in the late 1940s at the latest. It might have been from the Defense Department or the U.S. military.
I might have seen them on some Wikimedia Commons site but I'm not sure. Note: they are not any of the maps here
I specifically remember that the maps showed progress at intervals of twice a month.
Thanks for any help.
