there is numerous books upon Poland under german rules but few upon General gouvernement in english (at my knowledge)

- In the Service of Reich by Angolia with a chapter on GG
- Foreign Legions of the III Reich by Littlejohn with a chapter on Poland
- The SS and the administration of nazi occupied eastern europe 39/45
Dissertation thesis by Wheeler (Oxford College 1981 USA)

picture of polish blue police come from a german book from 1942 which was one of the sources for my article upon Generalgouvernement published in french (which pictures)
in 39/45 MAGAZINE.

best

Georges
