Documents & Research




[ Documents & Research ] → List of Issues and Editions


This list wants to be a tool for collectors, to assist them in quickly establishing which issues and editions were produced. It is also intended as a service for both historians and researchers, being a concise collection of the most essential details pertaining to the publishing history of Signal. You will find a number of important facts about the publication and distribution of the magazine in the 'Notes' column.

The list vividly illustrates the spreading of Signal as the Nazis extended their grasp on Europe. New editions sprung up shortly after the respective country had been either invaded and subdued, compelled to join the Axis side, or simply had become accessible to German propaganda. The cessation of a number of editions can equally be linked to the ongoing war in Europe.
