OMGUS-Handbuch: Die amerikanische Militarregierung in Deutschland 1945-1949

A much-delayed product of an American-German project to collect the vast documentation of the Office of Military Government for Germany. German archivists and a few historians have prepared this compilation of the organization and personnel of OMGUS, on a regional and zonal level. A useful reference work -- long on structures and lists of officeholders, short on historical reconstruction and analysis.
