Book for WWI and WWI Bank Notes from German Controlled Countries
August 27, 2008

A recent book has come my way from the european publishing house of Gietl Verlag.

Titled: Auslandische Geldscheine unter deutscher Besatzung im Ersten und Zweiten Weltkrieg it is a study of notes issued in areas under German infulence during World War I and World War II.

Authors Hans Grabowski, Henning Huschka and Wolfgang Schamberg present an extensively detailed German language catalog with color illustrations of the bank notes throughout. These are presented with full date variety descriptions, listings and prices in Euros. The catalog listings are crossed referenced to catalog numbers in the Standard Catalog of World Paper Money.

What I found quite interesting were the detailed historical introductions setting the political climate and economic scene under which these notes were issued. The historical chaper introductions are interspersed with sepia-tone contemporary photographs of the German Military operations.

A nice book for both the bank note collector and military historian.

It is ISBN# 978-3-86646-505-3. The page count is 320 and the book is published in a 5-3/4 x 8-1/4 format. Ordering information can be had at the Gietl site:
