Formed in 1939 SS-Polizei Division were not considered initially as an SS fighting force, and this status was reflected in the quality of the equipment they were issued. Following operations in France, Greece and then Russia, it was not until 1942 the division was transferred to the Waffen-SS, and eventually upgraded to a Panzergrenadier division, the 4th SS-Polizei-Panzergrenadier Division.

The book describes how the SS-Polizei Division fought across the Low Countries, the Eastern Front, before deploying to the Balkans and Greece where it committed numerous atrocities. During the last days of the War it was assigned to Army Detachment Steiner defending Berlin where many soldiers fought to the death.

This book is a unique glimpse into one of the most infamous fighting machines in World War Two and a great addition to any reader interested Waffen-SS history.

A subject little studied and of great interest. A 10 for friend Ian Baxter.

This is a wonderful history book with notes on where the Polizei division were in action, and the pictures some of which need explanation. While in film the Germans were portrayed as being well equipped and modern for the age, some of these pictures will challenge those thoughts.

An interesting and engaging pictorial history, for all those interested in the military history.

The artillery and rail transport feature in quite a few. The mix is also provided by summer time images in France at the outset and again later in Greece, a lot more shows the conditions they faced in the snow and the mud of the Eastern Front. Another good one from Ian Baxter.
