Identity documents were found everywhere in German-occupied Europe

The original purpose of this official 1944 SHAEF book was to make counterintelligence officers familiar with the different categories of identity and other documents carried by the citizens of Holland, Belgium and Luxembourg. They include: Military Status; Travel Documents, including documents allowing entrance into or residence in Prohibited Coastal Areas; Ration Cards; Curfew Passes; Vehicle Permits etc. Some of the documents shown are not strictly identity documents, but were included because they were necessary for specified civilian activities.

The book gives a thorough look at the minutia of the bureaucratic administration of German-occupied Europe through the documents of the military administration's civilian occupation regime. These historical documents are now extremely collectable. This original core reference gives reliable information to the purpose of issue, with actual-size colour illustrations of the artefact (front, back and internal), along with a physical description and issuance regulations.
