Sources and Maps

On the following pages you will find historical documents on the „Battle of Aachen“ in 1944. We provide a collection of maps and German sources (reports, messages, and Wehrmacht commands) from September and October of that year. You will also find a number of American sources, including a selection of leaflets, which addressed the capture of Aachen in October 1944. On a separate page we have compiled pictures and videos. Please note the copyright information for the individual materials. If you have questions or comments, please feel free to contact us at info (at)
