This document is an extremely rare intelligence product, and was issued in very small numbers towards the end of the Second World War, just as Allied troops were penetrating into the heart of Germany. Its aim was to allow intelligence officers thoiw to pinpoint the Nazi Party offices, military installations, police stations and other places of interest in every town in Germany.
The document was the result of cooperation between the US War Department and the British Intelligence branches of the War Office. It is presented in its original condition, without any alterations, and contains an enormous amount of hard, primary intelligence. With this data as their ‘bible’ Allied troops, and particularly Field Intelligence Officers, were able to go through every German and Austrian town to arrest local Nazis as well as inspecting all depots, barracks and offices which had any connection with the German military machine. Needless to say the pamphlet was a product of all intelligence sources – including HUMINT, ULTRA and all other sources, which was then painstakingly assembled on a geographical basis so that the underlying organisation of the Reich was laid open to the invading troops. It also includes a preface which outlines the higher commands of the Wehrmacht as well as giving the names and positions of all the highest ranking officers and officials
