Section I. INTRODUCTION

1. GENERAL

Perhaps to a greater extent than any other army, the

German Armed Forces employ military abbreviations on their maps and charts, on task force tables of organization, on direction and location sign posts in combat zones, on field orders, and, in short, in every case where abbrevia- tions may possibly be used. These abbreviations are often used in connection with military symbols (see German Military Symbols, January 1943, Military Intelli- gence Service). A thorough knowledge of both abbrevia- tions and symbols is therefore essential to military per- sonnel engaged in the interpretation of captured docu- ments. There is no "easy road to knowledge" in regard to these

military abbreviations.

more than one manner, sometimes in the course of a single document. Individual commanders frequently improvise

abbreviations, which will be understandable from the context to the German officer reading them, but may cause considerable difficulty to the non-German. A

Many words are abbreviated in

2 GERMAN

MILITARY

ABBREVIATIONS

thorough foundation in the German language is useful, but not infallible, in determining the meaning of a par- ticular abbreviation-guessing, in this, as in all military intelligence work, is dangerous.

2.

PRINCIPLES OF FORMATION

While the Germans do not follow any consistent pro-

the following tendencies can be

cedure in abbreviating,

observed:

a. Whenever possible the Germans keep enough of the

original word structure to make the abbreviation a recognizable skeleton of the word for which it stands.

An example is abkdrt. for abkommandiert.

b. Another common tendency is to lop off syllables of

the word being abbreviated; the degree to which this is carried depends on the writer's haste and the amount of comprehension he expects in the reader. Here also the

Germans attempt to leave enough of the distinctive struc-

ture of the word

to give

the reader a clue.

The word

Befehlshaber, for instance, can be abbreviated Befhb.,

Befh., or B.

c. In the case of compound words, the Germans often

make an abbreviation by taking elements or initial letters from each of the component parts. An example is Kfz.

for Kraftfahrzeug.

d. Sometimes this procedure results in a pronounceable

combination of letters, and the abbreviation gains cur- rency as a word. Flak for Flugzeugabwehrkanone,Gestapo for Geheime Staatspolizei,and Stuka for Sturzkampfflugzeug

are familiar examples.

3. SCOPE OF THIS DICTIONARY

Because of the extent of the field, it is unlikely that any dictionary of German military abbreviations could be "complete." New abbreviations, whether as the result of developments in military equipment and tactics, or as

the temporary writing orders,

With these the intelligence officer must deal to the best of

his ability.

A good working knowledge of the abbrevia-

inferred from the context.

But for Eisb.Pi.Rgt. it would be necessary to look under Eisb. and Pi.Rgt.separately. c. Besides strictly military terms the present dictionary contains abbreviations for many general German words and expressions which are likely to occur in military docu-

MILITARY

ABBREVIATIONS

ments. In deciding which of these nonmilitary abbrevia- tions to include, the aim has been to put in those which will probably occur most frequently rather than to include all possible forms. d. In a few cases German abbreviations will be found identical with those used in the U. S. Army. Examples are Apr. for April and mm for millimeter. Abbreviations of this type have not been included. But where a difference exists which might prove confusing, the German abbrevia- tion has been given. Examples are Dez. for December, and mm 2 for squaremillimeter.

e. While this dictionary is primarily for the use of army

personnel, a certain number of naval and aeronautic abbreviations are included in it. It is inevitable that such

abbreviations will be encountered in military documents, and the more familiar the intelligence officer is with them, the better.

4. ORGANIZATION OF THIS DICTIONARY

In using this dictionary the following principles of organization should be kept in mind:

a. Abbreviations are arranged alphabetically, first

according to the abbreviation itself, then according to the

word or expression abbreviated. Thus A. for Abteilung precedes A. for Ausbildung, and both these abbreviations precede Abt.

b. The umlaut is equivalent to the addition of e after

the vowel; consequently d- follows ad- and precedes af-.

c. The German capital I, often written J, will be found under I.

INTRODUTCTION

d. The German practice varies in use of the period following an abbreviation. In this list the period is usually not given, but an abbreviation given here without a period may appear in a document with one. e. A German abbreviation frequently can stand for either the singular or the plural of the word it abbreviates. In this list the English meaning is usually given in the singular only.
