I am nominating this article for A-Class review because it recently went through a successful GAN and I consider it meets the MILHIST A-class criteria. The division was one of three so-called "legionnaire" divisions consisting of a German cadre commanding Croat soldiers, and fought the Yugoslav Partisans from mid-1943 to the end of the war.

SupportComments: G'day, good work as usual. I did a bit of copy editing, please check that you are happy with my changes. I have the following other comments:
"returned to the NDH in May 1944..." do you mean May 1943?
"immediately attached to..." do you mean immediately in terms of time, or in terms of being a direct-command unit?
"the division was placed under the command of the 2nd Panzer Army, which had been redeployed to the Balkans". Where had it been before?
Eastern Front. Added.
is there any more that can be said about the types of operations the division undertook during Operations Panther and Ristow? Any significant actions/battles? How were the 100 casualties suffered?
"In late December 1944, Hühnewaldt was tasked..." do you mean "December 1943"?
G'day, I'm still a bit confused by this. The Battle of Banja Luka section starts off mentioning a date of "late December 1944" and then in a subsequent paragraph describes events from "February 1944". I think that the "late December 1944" should be "late December 1943", but the change you made here  leaves me uncertain... Regards, AustralianRupert (talk) 09:08, 29 August 2013 (UTC)
inconsistent: "Battle Group Willam had..." Elsewhere you seem to refer to this as "Kampfgruppe Willam";
"participated in the defence of Knin" --> against whom?
The Partisans. Added.
" but the Partisans then decided to make them prisoners of war". Is there any information on when the main body was released? AustralianRupert (talk) 04:30, 24 August 2013 (UTC)
Just a couple more to address. Thanks for the review, AR. Regards, Peacemaker67 (send... over) 11:07, 28 August 2013 (UTC)
::*I won't get to these for a week or so, will be out of town. Will get back on to it when I'm back online. Thanks, Peacemaker67 (send... over) 12:06, 29 August 2013 (UTC)
All done now, more info on Operation Ristow and (eventually) fixed the dates. Regards, Peacemaker67 (send... over) 04:46, 30 August 2013 (UTC)
