The Slovenian Axis Forces in World War II covers the various collaborationist forces in Slovenia that fought with the Gemans and Italians, such as the Slovene Home Guard, Village Guard and Legion of Death.
The 84 pages in this book begins with an interesting introduction on the history of Yugoslavia 1918-1945. This is followed by some general info on the collaborationist forces in Yugoslavia before moving on to the Italian controlled forces. These are covered in three pages with two tables of info on ranks and order of battle of the Legion of Death. I would like to have seen more info on the Italian units, but I suppose that more material was available on the German controlled units or prehaps it was assumed that the readers would be more interested in the German controlled ones. The German controlled forces are covered on 14 pages with numerous tables detailing order of battles and locations of the various forces.
This is followed by 45 pages with lots of very nice photos (according to the publisher, Axis Europa, the total number of photos are 165 of which 100 have never before been published). The photos includes many parade photos, equipment photos, great photos of uniforms and some of captured partisans.
The book ends with a few pages on the insignia of these forces. It would have been nice if some of the uniforms photos from the photo section had been placed on these pages instead since I found myself constantly looking at those photos while I was reading about the insignia..........
