Hello everyone!

Has anybody got the new book "La division Handschar: Waffen-SS de Bosnie - 1943-1945" by Xavier Bougarel? It is a French book about the "Handschar" Division. I don't speak French but would like to know if there are some rare pictures from French arhives or something?

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards
BG44
Cheers,

Well, the cover, containing a staged (and mirrored) photo of customs officers escorting Roma men, certainly doesn't look promising ;)

No pictures at all. The book mainly dealing with infos about political, social life, mentality and war crimes of the division. His sources mainly came from archives and war crime trials from ex-Yugoslavia and interviews with ex-members of division in Bosnia.
