I have seen it all over the internet, thanks to google searches, but none of those quotes has a link to the original source, or a picture of the document. Given... a picture of the document does not really mean anything either.
Unless we can all read the document, then what you are posting is just hearsay.
Sounds like an interesting book.
Here is what Wikipedia has to say:
Also here is a link to AboveTopSecret.com where this subject was discussed and dismissed a couple weeks ago. Apparently the warhead design is ridiculously inadiquite for what a nuclear device would need for critical mass.
Wikipedia is constantly revised, edited and re-edited by combattive contributors, so the content is often contested and shifting like quicksand.
My apologies for sloppy citation. The signal to my knowledge was first cited in German and has been referred to since in English by various commentators like Joseph Farrell.
The original reference to it was in German by Edgar Mayer and Thomas Mehner, Hitler und die, Bombe" (Rottenburg: Kopp Verlag, 2002),
In English I think this link to a PDF of “Reich of the Black Sun,” cites the document. You can search the PDF for words or phrases:
I believe from an author friend in the United States that only US citizens can access NARA archives online. In any case it is on a microfilm SRA roll which would defeat any effort to find it online. SRA relates to records of communications by Japanese Diplomatic Attache during WW2.
The full citation is Japanese Diplomatic signal intercept 12 December 1944 (Magic decrypt) Trans 14 Dec 44 (3020- B, "Stockholm to Tokyo, No. 232.9 December 1944 (War Department), National Archives, RG 457, SRA 14628-32, declassified October 1, 1978
IIRC the signal refers to destruction of the 19th Division 150 miles south of Kursk in June 1943, before the famous tank battle. There was the reduction of the Izmur Pocket about this time frame, just north of Karkov. I think the 19th Division were also referred to as the Vorezneh Rifles, but I am no expert in Soviet units.
I have faith that the document cited exists.
