NARA Ordering Guide
 


 
Foreign Military Studies
 
This section has information regarding manuscripts produced under the Foreign Military Studies Program of the Historical Division, United States Army, Europe, and of predecessor commands since 1945. Most of these manuscripts were prepared by former high-ranking officers of the German Armed Forces, writing under the sponsorship of their former adversaries.
 
A guide to the manuscripts, which includes both a catalog and an index can be downloaded below.
 
Copies of the manuscripts can be ordered from the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration; depending on the document series they may be available in both English and German. To order call this number, 301-837-2000 tell them what you are looking for. They will forward your call to the correct person. They usually have some kind of limit to the number of documents/publications you can order but that seems to change over time. Most orders can be reproduced on CD/DVD or paper. The default format seems to vary with the document type so I would be specific as to the format wanted. After taking your order they will mail you a quote that you will then mail back or call with your payment.
 
FMS manuscripts can now be ordered online on the NARA website, click on this link: NARA Online, when the page opens click on the microfilm tab and then enter "M1035" in the seach field and click on Search. When the search page come up click on a Publication Title and then on Continue Order, you should now see individual microfilm listed and a place to enter the quantity to order. You will need to be logged in before you can see this order page.
