This would be standard title form for the articles in this series; the page to be moved to is currently a redirect to German 2nd Light Division, which should probably be merged into this article. MisfitToys 00:07, 4 January 2006 (UTC)

Is this a fan site or a historical article? The 7th PD didn't go out of existence after the French campaing, but you might be forgiven for thinking so from this article. There's also a certain amount of Rommel-woship here.
I re-added the well-earned neutrality tag. I am not an expert on this division, but surely we could add some OOB info and some actual operational history as opposed to the schoolboy stuff in the article now. DMorpheus (talk) 15:06, 6 September 2008 (UTC)
-True the entire history should be told: The division remained in France until Feb 1941. Then it was refitted and sent to the Eastern front where it fought in the central sector until May 1942. After that it was once again sent to France for refitting. It returned to the Eastern front Feb 1943, this time to the southern sector. It took part in the fighting at Kursk, Kiev, Zhitomir, Kharkov and later in the long retreat through the Ukraine. It was transferred to the Baltic states Aug 1944 and remained there until Nov 1944. It retreated west fighting the Red Army and surrendered to the British Army at Schwerin at the May 1945. Sneaking Viper (talk) 02:06, 3 November 2008 (UTC)
2nd Light Division merge?
2nd Light Division (Germany) states that it was later reorganized into the 7th. I was wondering if anyone has a problem with incorporating the information on there into here, and making the 2nd Light Division article a redirect to this one? §FreeRangeFrog 08:16, 10 December 2008 (UTC)
