Over 6 million ISBNs and ISBN barcodes are listed. The ISBN format was created by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). ISBNs are 10 or 13 digit numbers that uniquely identify a book by its title, publisher, and format. ISBN bar codes are just a bar code display of the ISBN number. ISBNs were introduced in 1970 and were originally 10 digit numbers. In 2007, ISBN numbers changed to 13 digit numbers so the system wouldn't run out of ISBN numbers to assign. The ISBN number is typically found on the back cover of the book along with the ISBN barcode that represents that number. The ISBN number can also typically be found on one of the first few pages of the book where the publisher and copyright information is listed.
Each edition of a book and each format of a book has a different ISBN number. This is very useful when searching for the softcover edition or the hardcover edition of a book. It is also useful for college students searching for the correct edition of a college textbook for their university class.

Axel Ryker. The Gestapo’s top henchman. Ryker is Heinrich Himmler’s top problem solver, i.e. murderer. As ruthless as he is cunning, Ryker is sent to America with a startling mission—find and kill their own spy, Erika Lehmann.
The year is 1942. In Evansville, Indiana, a Jewish metallurgist named Joseph Mayer is conducting top secret experiments for the U.S. Navy. Life could not be better for Joe Mayer: he loves his job, and he is dating a beautiful, young Jewish woman…
“Highly impressive is Whicker’s knowledge of the minutiae of spying at all levels in WW II Germany, Britain, and the USA. With its detailed descriptions, Invitation to Valhalla reminds me of Tom Clancy’s Hunt for Red October. Whicker is especially good at portraying the vicious infighting that went on constantly among the Nazi leaders. The suspense grows gradually but inexorably till the very end.”
