Substudy "World War II": Nostradamus Seer and Prophet .. Quatrains that Apply to Today (W.D. Pelley, Indianapolis, 1941)
In 1941, the Fellowship Press Inc, seated in Indianapolis, published the brochure Nostradamus Seer and Prophet .. Quatrains that Apply to Today, a right-wing brochure in which the readers were told that according to Nostradamus, the Jews would be expelled from Germany, England and France, the downfall of England was imminent and that the outcome of World War II would be a long period of peace and prosperity in Europe, in which Germany will be allied with France, which by then is ruled by a new king, Henry V, who also rules Italy and Spain, and with a new Pope, Gregory XVII.
In this article, it is demonstrated that many parts of the text of Nostradamus Seer and Prophet can be traced back to the 1940-edition of Oracles of Nostradamus, which in 1891 was written by Charles A. Ward. Other parts of the text seem to go back to an edited version of the 1940-edition of Oracles of Nostradamus. The supposition of Edgar Leoni in Nostradamus and his prophecies that Nostradamus Seer and Prophet was based upon the brochure What will happen in the near future?, is no longer tenable.

Substudy "World War II": "Zag" Nostradamus dezen oorlog? (in: De Telegraaf, Amsterdam, October 5, 1939)
In France, the German invasion in Poland resulted in a boom in the selling of comments upon the Prophecies of Nostradamus. What was the attitude in The Netherlands towards this act of war and did people seek their refuge in the Prophecies of Nostradamus? In the article "Zag" Nostradamus dezen oorlog? (tr.: Did Nostradamus "see" this war?) in the issue of October 5, 1939 of the Dutch daily De Telegraaf, a French and a British comment were compared with each other. Emphasis was laid upon contradictions and nationalist statements by their authors. 
The author of "Zag" Nostradamus dezen oorlog? mentioned nothing about a boom in The Netherlands in the selling of Nostradamus literature. He did not pose the question how the imminent future of The Netherlands would be and what was written about that in the Prophecies of Nostradamus. He also did not discuss what people in Germany by the end of 1939 thought about the Prophecies of Nostradamus. As a supplement to his article, you can read why in September 1939, people in Germany believed that Nostradamus predicted the German invasion in Poland and how national-socialist propagandists used this comment to undermine the morale in neutral countries.

Substudy "World War II": Le prophète de Salon (Brussels, 1941)
On his website Superstition Psyop, the retired American sergeant-major Herbert A. Friedman, who devoted himself to the study of psychological warfare, described a national-socialist Nostradamusbrochure, entitled Le prophète de Salon, which was brought into circulation in Belgium in 1941. A comparison of Friedman's remarks about the contents of this brochure with the contents of Der Seher von Salon, volume 38 in the series Informations-Schriften, shows that Friedman's copy of Le prophète de Salon is a French version of Der Seher von Salon, which was not part of a series of propaganda brochures.

Substudy "World War II": What will happen in the near future? (L.F.W. Staël von Holstein alias "Norab", Stockholm, 1940)
This article, dating from November 2006, is rewritten for the greater part. The reason for rewriting was the availability of Was bringt das Jahr 1940? and the missing pages What will happen in the near future?.
In 1940, the Swedish baron Lage Fabian Wilhelm Staël von Holstein, a convinced national-socialist and activist, made a Swedish and an English translation of Was bringt das Jahr 1940?. The Swedish translation was meant for distribution in Sweden; the English translation was meant for distribution in the United States. In the past years, it was already clear that in a number of passages, these translations were quite different from each other. Thanks to the availability of the missing pages of What will happen in the near future? and of Was bringt das Jahr 1940?, both translations by Staël von Holstein can be compard with the source text. It now becomes clear what Staël von Holstein has added to his translations, which parts of Was bringt das Jahr 1940? he omitted and which parts he replaced by other texts, all in order to make the propagandistic impact as strong as possible.
The text comparison further shows that What will happen in the near future?, compared with the contents of Was bringt das Jahr 1940?, is the most deviating translation of all up to now available translations.

Substudy "World War II": Was bringt das Jahr 1940? Die Antwort geben uns "Les vrayes Centuries et Propheties de Maistre Michel Nostradamus" (H.W. Herwarth von Bittenfeld c.s., typescript, Berlin, 1939)
In the Bundesarchiv in Berlin, a non-dated, non-illustrated, anonymous typescript of 26 pages is preserved (file number R 9350/1083), entitled Was bringt das Jahr 1940? Die Antwort geben uns "Les vrayes Centuries et Propheties de Maistre Michel Nostradamus". The text of the propaganda brochures Hoe zal deze oorlog eindigen?, Que se passera-t-il entre le printemps 1940 et le printemps 1941?, Le profezie del Maestro Michele Nostradamus anno 1558, Sta nam donosi 1940?, What will happen in the near future?, Nostradamus spådomar om kriget and Što se dogadjalo i što će se dogoditi can be traced back to this typescript.
The acquisition of Was bringt das Jahr 1940? resulted in the revision of the article
"The German source text of a.o. Hoe zal deze oorlog eindigen? [...]" and the updating of the articles, dealing with the translations of this source text. It is now clearly visible that Herwarth von Bittenfeld c.s. copied, often word-by-word, texts from German Nostradamusliterature, published between 1920 and 1939. It also becomes clear that quatrains, which only occur in one translation, were not included in Was bringt das Jahr 1940?, which means that they were inserted by the translator. The preface in Hoe zal deze oorlog eindigen?, in which the reader is told that this brochure is based upon research by the late Jean François Pasteur, turns out to be an invention by the translator, since it does not occur in Was bringt das Jahr 1940?. Like this, there is a more detailed insight in the history of the brochure with which Goebbels wanted to undermine the morale in what he called "the neutral countries", the role of Herwarth von Bittenfeld c.s. and the role of the translators.
