Summary "Based on extensive archival research, this book offers the first historical examination of the arrest, trial, and punishment of the leaders of the SS Einsatzgruppen - the mobile security and killing units employed by the Nazis in their racial war on the eastern front. In addition to describing the legal proceedings that held these men accountable, this book also examines recent historiographical trends and perpetrator paradigms and expounds on such contested issues as the timing and genesis of the Final Solution, the perpetrators' route to crime, and their motivation for killing, as well as discussing the tensions between law and history."--BOOK JACKET.
