Product Description: by Christopher R. Browning

Browning's book is a crucial source of original research used for the bestseller "Hitler's Willing Executioners" and gives evidence to suggest the opposite conclusion: that the sad-sack German draftees who perpetrated much of the Holocaust were not expressing some uniquely Germanic evil, but that they were average men comparable to the run of humanity, twisted by historical forces into in-human shapes. Browning, a thorough historian who lets no one off the moral hook, interviewed hundreds of the killers, who simply could not explain how they had sunken into savagery under Adolf Hitler.
