New Book on the German Armed Forces

Dear Feldgrau readers:

I'd like to announce that after seven years of research, my book on the history of the Geheime Feldpolizei (Secret Field Police) will be published by McFarland Publishers in December 2017 or January 2018. You can actually pre-order the book through Amazon.com.
The book is titled "The German Secret Field Police in Greece, 1941-1944". While the book covers the activities of the GFP in Greece, there are chapters on the GFP in the West (France, Low Countries, and Scandinavia) as well as the East (mainly USSR). The reason for this is that I compared the actions and activities of the GFP in Greece and compared it to their actions in other regions of Europe. The book contains chapters on the specific personnel of the GFP in Greece, and the organization of the GFP there, as well as elsewhere.

Thank you.
Dr. Antonio J. Munoz

Sounds interesting, Antonio. In your research did you run across Professor John Hondros' work on the German occupation of Greece?? I believe he was consulted about Kurt Waldheim's activities in Greece. He was a professor of mine many years ago!! Best wishes.

Thanks for the heads up Antonio. I'll read this book for sure since I will be in Greece next May. Hopefully, this book contains information about the deserved retribution by the Greek partisans against the German invader.

I am not quite sure what this means "deserved retribution by the Greek partisans against the German invader" has anything to do with the book's topic on Geheime Feldpolizei.

I believe the author of the post (John P. Moore) intended to imply that the book might contain descriptions of Greeks fighting Germans in anti-partisan drives. Actually the majority of the book deals with the organization of the GFP in Greece, as well as individual member biographies, and GFP operations in Greece. These actions are then compared to GFP comportment and behavior in the West (France, Netherlands, Denmark, Norway), and the East (USSR).
