Handbook of the Hitler-Jugend Bann Numbers and Gebiets Triangles (Wilhelm P.B.R. Saris with Philippe Gillain and Jeff Hammond)

The author presents the reader with an in-depth development of HJ Gebiet triangles, shoulder straps and their colors, and the ranking systems. Since the 1960s Bann lists have been available in Europe and later, lists have appeared on the Internet. This handbook is based only on official sources and contains the most complete listing of Bann numbers and their locations.

At a glance, one can check a number's development and its relationship to a specific triangle. Additionally, the triangles and shoulder straps for all known special forces and formations are covered, as well as their organizational development.

To supplement the massive amount of information contained in this 784 page volume, over 1000 color photographs of triangles and shoulder straps, plus documents and beautiful period portraits support the text.

This book is a "Must Have" for all HJ collectors and researchers.

Hard cover, 6" x 9", 784 pages, over 1,034 color photos/illustrations, Deluxe Binding.

About Us

J.J. Fedorowicz Publishing went into business in 1983 as Military Book Distributor, selling other companies’ books through the mail. Many of those books were in German, and so during the next few years a number of individuals commented on how it would be nice to see them in English. I investigated the costs and possibilities, and the first book was printed; 400 copies of a 40-page biography on Paul Hausser (how many of you own that one?). This was followed by European Volunteers, the first hard cover and first translation. And here we are now, almost 100 books later, and many more to go.

From the first day, the company’s objective was to provide translations of the very best German-language books covering the German ground forces in WW II and to publish them in a format that would last many years (hard cover, on acid-free paper, with laminated covers). It appears that we have been fairly successful.

Started as a one-man operation by John Fedorowicz, the company grew steadily until more help was needed. Over time, 3 partners came on board and we added Tiger Hobbies as a local outlet for modelers and book buyers. Eventually, as times and economic circumstances demanded, the company has returned to the original owner. However, Sharron, who came on board in 2002 as office manager, has stayed to keep me in line and on target. Ken helps with Tiger Hobbies. So here we are, John, Sharron and Ken - when you call you will get one of us.

Defying the hard economic situation, we plan to publish many more excellent books in the future and to serve your reading and modeling needs for many more years.
