Amongst the main sites covered are Nordhausen; the Mittelbau Project at Woffleren/Himmerberg, Niedersachswerfen/Muhlberg, Ruttleberode/Stempeda, Niedersachswerfen/Kohnstein, Kuckuck and Ellrich/Klippen; Bad Herzbeurg/Osterode.

Also included are Project Malachit at Hamberstadt/Langenstein Muhlberg; Project Turmalin at Blankenburg/Regenstein; Kena/Kahla; Heimkele Hohle, Rottleberode; and Kaliwerk Bernterode.

Work carried out, or intended to be carried out, at these locations included the construction of Junkers jet engines, liquid oxygen, synthetic oil storage, Me-262 retooling, aircraft landing gear, V1 and V2 production, shell-filling and storage.

The concentration camps at Buchenwald and Mittelbau-Dora provided most of the labour force required to contruct the tunnels systems for the Mittelbau Project.

Although issued in two formats - one marked as "SECRET" and numbered, the other (as this example) without classification and unnumbered - both variants are exceedingly rare.
