Simple as that.
For more than 35 years USM Inc. has been a principal source of rare, historical World War II era material, and obscure facts and details related to history's greatest conflict. We are regularly used as a unique resource by film production companies, libraries, museums and collectors worldwide when difficult challenges must be met on a timely basis.
|This is a private, scholarly website of historical information and material which embraces NO political point of view and has NO political or social agenda. The material we offer for sale is often unique and most items in our inventory are one-of-a-kind. All items depicted on this website are subject to prior sale. Prices are subject to change without notice.
Those who buy from us are typically museums, libraries and collections around the world. We sell historical material to government agencies of the United States, Germany, Israel and many other countries. We also provide buyers with high-resolution images from the period from one of the world's largest archives of unique images. See below.
We take pride in offering good value for money spent, but buyers must understand that this is a field of growing demand and shrinking supply. We often find ourselves in the position of not being able to replace an item for our listed price, or not being able to replace it in our inventory at all.
There are no laws in the United States of America that prevent citizens from owning material regardless of its original political orientation. In some countries such as those of the European Union (EU), Canada and Australia various laws may impact a citizen's right to buy, own, or display Third Reich material to the extent that purchase, ownership or display of such material could result in confiscation, a fine, incarceration or all three. Far be it from us to suggest that we are familiar with the fine points of any foreign law. Therefore, it is a responsibility of any and all potential buyers of the material offered for sale on this website, to determine in advance if it is importable in his or her country. By making a purchase of material from this website, citizens of foreign countries are also assuring USM that they are acting within the laws of their country and recognize that all responsibility of USM, Inc. ends when the material is correctly addressed and mailed at a US post office. USM will e-mail all foreign customers proof of shipment when requested to do so.
|Our staff has long traveled the world purchasing rare 20th century military history books, photographs, maps, documents and other historical Third Reich German material. Items that are no longer needed for research and duplicate material are offered for sale in the rare books, militaria and documents section of this website. Click HERE.

A NOTE TO GERMAN VIEWERS:
We have received a number of e-mails from German internet users attacking us for selling items, “stolen in Germany by American GIs”. Nothing could be further from the truth! 99.5% of the items offered on this website were purchased by employees of USM Inc. in Germany and other European countries.
Over the years we have had thousands of glowing testimonials both to the accuracy of our descriptions and the historical nature of the things we sell. You will also note that we are very often cited by customers for the care we take in packaging the material we send to them, and the speed with which it is delivered. Our customers deserve nothing less.
