Ordnungspolizei : german police battalions july 39 august 42.
The encyclopédie of Massimo Arico a fellwo member is the third book published in english on the subject and the most complet. It deal with the whole battalions : organisationnal aspects and action since the beginning till their incorporation into Police Regiments.
Fully referenced with a lot of foot notes giving, it provide a lot of informations.
Interesting charts upon units.
the pictural part with a number of unpublished pics is interesting. Therefore most pics are from private source and show policemen posing in various situations . I regret not enough war correspondant pictures of units in actions and portraits of battalions commanders.
Lack of Biographical infos on main batt. C.O. of which a number rose to higher duties.
Finally, I recommand warmly this book with very pertinent analysis. A reference on this subject to have.
I will not speak of the publisher because he is not my friend.

I keep getting this website. I just said that I had all of Mark Yergers books on on the German Cross in Gold Holders of the Waffen-SS. Das Reich Division, Nordland Regiment and Division, Cavalry Units and Police Units (with SS-Staf Otto Giesecke on the front). I have these, so is Vol 2 of Polizei Div expected shortly? Any response greatly accepted. Thanks
