I've received a copy of this, and it has many nice images that will be new to almost everyone who sees them. The first volume covered divisions 1-6, this one has 7-12. You don't have to read French to appreciate the hundreds of new photos, or look through the command rosters. So this new book, and the previous first volume, are both highly recommended.

I enjoyed looking thru my copy of Waffen-SS Dictionnaire volume 2. Most of the photos are previously unpublished and Heimdal did an excellent job of reproducing most photos. My only suggestion would be to change the title of the book so that prospective readers could better understand the content of the book. Even though the text is in French, non-French speakers will see "Dictionnaire" in the title and think this book is some kind of dictionary and pass on it. I believe that a title something like "Waffen-SS in Photos, Divisions 7 thru 13" would have greater appeal.

As John points out, I made a mistake in saying the book covers divisions 7-12. In fact, it covers 7-13! No offense intended towards Handschar :D

Looking forward to the section on the 36th division in volume 7.
