Customer Reviews

Incredible work  August 1, 2011
by


This textbook is a rare combination of scholarly analysis and narrative style. It is equally good for the casual reader and serious student. The fact that Goldhagen lifted large portions of this book's narrative storyline should be an indication of how solid the research was. This information is a goldmine that Goldhagen stripmined for his own conclusions. Fortunately, Browning has a keen authorial voice and clearly draws his own conclusions on the culpability of Battalion 101. This is a rare, serious glimpse at the perpetrators of the Holocaust.






Ordinary Men : Reserve Police Battalion 101 and the Final Solution in Poland: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.

Summary

This book is a crucial source of original research used for the bestseller Hitler's Willing Executioners--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 inhuman shapes.

Browning, a thorough historian who lets no one off the moral hook nor fails to weigh any contributing factor--cowardice, ideological indoctrination, loyalty to the battalion, and reluctance to force the others to bear more than their share of what each viewed as an excruciating duty--interviewed hundreds of the killers, who simply could not explain how they had sunken into savagery under Hitler.
