Captured German Documents, 1944-1945

Scope and Contents note

Administrative orders, clippings, correspondence, diaries, instructions, leaflets, maps, memoranda, pamphlets, reports. The series includes only those German documents that were processed by various agencies of American and British governments and forwarded to the Psychological Warfare Division. The original arrangement—division into files A, DE, etc.—has been preserved, although the reasons for such a division are not always clear. Copies of the same document may sometimes be found in several files. The inventories of three files (DE, PID, and S) were compiled previously, perhaps by Daniel Lerner. Two of them (DE and S) appear in Lerner's book, Sykewar: Psychological Warfare against Germany, pp. 350-389. Although a few documents in these files are missing, the inventories were incorporated in the register unchanged
