Summary
"Fegelein's Horsemen and Genocidal Warfare explores the deployment of the SS Cavalry Brigade in 1941-2, with a special focus on the development of its 'dual role'. The brigade became a pacemaker of the Holocaust in Belorussia during the summer of 1941, and fought against the Red Army in the region between Toropets and Rzhev, a focal point of the Eastern Front, between December 1941 and June 1942. SS cavalrymen underwent a continuous brutalisation which saw them commit acts of mass violence with thousands of victims, a development only comparable to that of the Einsatzgruppen and battalions of the order police. Going beyond a unit history, Henning Pieper analyses the role and behavior of the brigade's personnel and places it within the context of research on perpetrators and the operational history of the Waffen-SS. Thus, military history, Holocaust research, and perpetrator history are combined in this interdisciplinary approach"--
