"I waited for this book a long time the wait was worth it.The book is first class.The book covers german police battalions from the invasion of poland,to the start of the stalingrad campaign july 1942.The book is well researched. Footnotes are at the end of the chapter,not at the end of the book (I like that) The other thing that i like is its readability.The german police is a confusing organization some units were wiped out. Others were combined to form other units. Still others were reassigned,some place else.This book really is informative it cuts through all the red tape.You can read this book and understand what is happening in poland and russia.I would give this book 6 stars,but it doesnt go that high. This book is a must to explain the german police involvement in mass murder and the holocaust".

"Massimo Arico est un passionné et un des plus grand spécialiste de la police allemande en uniforme. Son encyclopédie des bataillons de l'Ordnungspolizei est le second ouvrage sur le thème paru en anglais et le plus complet. Il présente l'ensemble des bataillons de police : les aspects organisationnels et leur emploi de leur création à 1942 date à laquelle ils ont été incorporés dans les régiments de police.
Précis, complet, il s'appuie sur de très nombreuses notes référencées qui donnent un base solide à l'étude et fournissent une mine d'information de premier ordre.
les 42 tableaux présentant les unités sont particulièrement intéressants.
Si la partie iconographique à la mérite de présenter un grand nombre de photos jamais publiées, elle souffre de présenter des photos prises par les membres des unités avec les policiers prennent la pause. il est regrettable que les photos de correspondants de guerre présentant des bataillons en action publiés dans les magazines de la police allemande ou celles du fonds des Bundesarchiv n'aient pas été exploités. L'aspect biographique fait un peu défaut notamment une courte bio des principaux commandants de bataillon et des photos de ceux ci aurait été appréciés pour compléter le tableau d'ensemble.
Au final, je recommande chaleureusement cet ouvrage qui analyse avec beaucoup de pertinence et de précision l'action des bataillons de l'Ordnungspolizei et constitue actuellement la référence sur le sujet".
 
REVIEW PUBLISHED BY War-Talk.com:
"Overall it is a very good outline of the formation and deployment of Ordnungspolizei Reserve / Polizei Battalions from the Sept 1939 up until 1943. As with any project of this scale there are going to be slight errors & omissions in the information & since purchasing the book I have personally come across a few. Most notably in relation to the under reporting of fatalities of Polizei Battalion 93. This cropped up in a thread I participated on over at axis history forum following the sale on ebay of photographs relating to the post ambush funerals at Kranj Cemetery :
According to the book on 27th Dec 1941, a partisan ambush in Slovenia claimed the lives of just 3 policemen, whereas in fact the death toll was significantly higher for the Polizei.
I have come across other errors/omissions in relation to deployments of Pol.Btl.181 & 102. It's probably unfair to single out one book like this in a WW2 books thread, however I think it's a good reminder that even authors with the best intentions can never be 100% reliable. Overall I would recommend the book but I have to say my confidence in it's comprehensiveness & accuracy is not what it used to be".
