This monumental bibliography was made as a result of the cooperation between major Yugoslav libraries and museums. It lists 9103 books, brochures, magazines, newspapers and other publications, made by the Yugoslav partisans during WWII. Named are not only the titles, made on the soil of Yugoslavia, but also those made in the allied camps in North Africa and Italy and publications, printed in prison and concentration camps all over Europe.

The introduction was written in English, French and Russian. The various indexes and appendices on the back are helpful with additional information and a large folding map shows the locations of the underground presses. The illustrations represent book and magazine covers, as well as the production of the books, the interiors of the underground presses and printers at work.

In 1964, the Yugoslav libraries housed an almost complete collection of such partisan publications as a result of systematic collecting of such material in special press centers during the war. After the collapse of Yugoslavia, many of the publications, listed in the book, have been disposed of from the libraries by the new governments or destroyed in the Yugoslav wars.

The bibliography is until today the most valuable source for an insight in the fascinating world of the partisan WWII press.
