Can anyone assist me to locate where I can obtain the map GSGS Operation Totalise?
Officially, I don't think there is any such thing. The GSGS series of maps are exactly that.....maps. Having said that, many maps have been reproduced with various overlays, including, for example, official defence overprints and also used with unofficial overlays in books, regimental histories and war diaries. eBay can be a reasonable source of both categories but caveat emptor!
A google image search for Operation Totalise brings up a number of maps which may be what you are looking for.
For the base maps, this is where I'd go: www.battlefieldhistorian.com GSGS 4347
TOTALIZE was also prepared as a BAOR Battlefield Tour. There should be a copy at the National Archives, or there's this.
GSGS 4249 France 1:100,000, Sheet 7F Caen - Falaise is on the British Library website.
Also available on the same site are the GSGS 4250 France 1:50,000, Sheets 7F/1, 7F/3, 7F/4, 7F5, 7F/6.
Don't take too much notice of the British Library's label for each map, they seem to have mixed titles up. There is a "report a concern" link which I used several months ago to point out a few errors but the errors are still there.
Thank you for your advise.
Gives me something to go on.
Here's a couple of files I found that may be of interest:
