Book "German Secret Armament Codes until 1945" is now available again !

I just want to let you know that my publisher has now done a new print of my book.

It was sold out, but today I got the big package from the printshop :-)

These codes were used to cover the manufacturers names on weapons, ammunition and every other kind of military equipment like parts of airplanes, vehicles, ships or radio equipment from 1920 until 1945.

The book contains more than 500 pages with about 11.000 codes, is sorted in two ways (after codes and after company-names), contains ALL code systems (abbreviations, number-codes, letter-codes, LDO-numbers for medals & insignias and the RZM-numbers for NSDAP- & SS-equipment). The official list with letter codes ends with "ozz", but I was able to add three pages of later codes. The book covers the background and the development of the code systems. I have found many original documents in archives to reproduce the way of the development step by step.

It is written bilingual in German and English language!

The prices incl. shipping (registered mail) are:

Europe: € 38,00
World: $US 46.00

Payment is accepted by Paypal, bank-transfer or cash (EUR and USD). No cheques!

The book can be ordered directly from me: GGBuch @
(Paypal-address is different)

Also I can sign the book

With best wishes from Germany

If you want to know who is who with the codes, you must have this book. Highly recommended, and well done.
