Reviews - What do customers think about FLORIAN GEYER DIVISION (Album historique)?

.  Nov 4, 2006
usual good Heimdal picture quality. Most of the pix are of the troops; very little equipment, weapons and very few AFV`s. most pix seem to be from 1941-44, little from Hungary `45. has a mercifully short pre-war section of parade-shots. picture captions are usually a couple of sentences long, and there are some pages of unit history, but not detailed action, more times-places-movements.
Could have been better  Nov 9, 2004
This is, as far as I know, the only English work in the history of the 8. SS Kavallerie Division Florian Geyer, originally a non elite unit for anti-partisan warfare in the rear areas of the German Army, yet one which when thrusted with frontline service against the regular Soviet Army, proved itself, imbued with the SS ethos, to be more than equal to its adversaries.

A seond string unit equipped with captured Polish/Czech arms, Florian Geyer, as the years went by, turned itself, with the influx of young Reichdeutsh volunteers and Volksdeutsch conscripts trained in German arms, into a first rate, horse drawn (like most Heer infanterie units) unit with reputation and prowess to match.

My only gripe is that the history of the unit is a bit sketchy, and you need to look up to some German works to fully appreciate the units' worth.
