4.0 von 5 Sternen Review 27. Dezember 2011
Von Stephen Campbell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
There is not a lot of books out there on Dirlewanger in English. French Maclean wrote one and that's about it that I know of.

This book is short and was probably written as a Doctoral thesis. The author tried to write it with a sociological/psychological slant rather than a straight history of the unit. That works in some places but reads like filler in others. He used three primary sources and filled in the rest with other research.

The author admits the source material is spotty and for some periods of time there is no record. This isn't unusual for a unit like this and he does do a good job of placing them when there is a record. Most of this was when Dirlewanger's unit was working specific named SS-Police anti-partisan operations.

The author also covers the units transfer to Slovakia towards the end of the war. He also covers the different versions of the unit as the personnel changed from the original convicted poachers to whatever material was available that no other unit would accept.

What did make me crazy was the author not stating what Police Battalion or Regiment Dirlewanger's unit was working with. I also thought there could have been far more information about his role in the liquidation of Jews and others.

Edit: I have a copy of the flight log for the pilot assigned to EG B that places Dirlewanger in the early stages of the war. He was, to me at least, being flown to locations to receive orders to sensitive to be transmitted any other way.

The book also mentions Hans Siegling, a man who was everywhere in the east when mass murder was required. What the author does not mention is his earlier work in EG A as a Hauptmann in a Police Battalion.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Psyschological study not history. 21. Mai 2012
Von Angry consumer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Rather dry with terribly long hunting analogies, non-linear chapters, no true history of the unit, very little detail of atrocities committed. Very bland history. This vook will not hold your attention and is a bore to read.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not for me 15. März 2012
Von Strommy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
The Eastern Front has always captivated me, the sheer brutality and hatred on both sides, two warped ideologies battling each other and all the unfortunate civilians trapped between them. There is not much material available on the Dirlewanger Brigade so when I saw this it caught my eye. Overall, I found this to be an extremely difficult read. Nothing to do with comprehension simply I found the material to be extremely dry and it never held my attention for more than a few pages at a time. It's also more of psychological study of the Brigade rather than a straight history. Don't get me wrong, it is a very well written book, but I like my history more linear and more personal. There are also no pictures/maps, which was a disappointment. When reading about specific individuals/units I like to put faces with the names/words. I should have listened to the other reviewers such as Stephen Campbell. He is absolutely correct when he says "This book is short and was probably written as a Doctoral thesis. The author tried to write it with a sociological/psychological slant rather than a straight history of the unit.". While the book certainly does touch on the history its primary focus is the sociological/psychological aspects of how the Brigade was formed (from poachers, to criminals and finally even communists), it's motivations and its actions. If you enjoy reading Doctoral Thesis then you may find this book extremely interesting, personally I didn't.

4.0 von 5 Sternen valuable if incomplete 21. Februar 2012
Von Konrad Baumeister - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The SS Dirlewanger Brigade has gotten increasing attention in popular literature and WWII studies, but there remain very few books specifically covering the unit. The one existing in English by French McLean dealt to some degree with Oskar Dirlewanger himself, and his ongoing legal troubles, but there was precious little coverage of the combat or police record of the unit. This book by Christian Ingrau fills in some of these blanks, but leaves the full story still untold.

There is quite a bit regarding the formation of the unit, the concept of poachers to be used on the eastern front against partisans (and civilians); Hitler, Himmler and Goering all had conceptions of the morality and mental outlook of poachers vs other types of criminals, and there is a lot of pseudo-analysis of the concept of hunting humans in the east. The book also shows how over the course of the war, the initial composition of the unit altered as camp guards, other criminals, or other 'recruits' forcibly introduced into the formation became more numerous or dominant.

There is the story of the endless partisan sweeps, Dirlewanger's unit kept almost constantly in action. While despised by the SS and its leadership, there seems to be some kind of grudging respect from his troops, particularly while the unit was still smaller and his personal leadership style - personally brave, somewhat indulgent, morally corrupt - is evident to all. This, too, changes over time as his distance from his men increases.

Along the way we learn that other formations were not always keen to be serving near Dirlewanger; that his rather corrupt requisitioning style was not welcomed in the towns even by hardened Nazi administrators; that discipline was rarely a problem until the end of the war. Fighting the Red Army in 1945 also proved a good deal more difficult that dealing with partisans.

The Dirlewanger Brigade makes for a unique and fascinating subject to study, and while Ingrao's book is not definitive, it represents a great improvement over what was out there prior.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Why? 19. Februar 2013
Von rudi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

Wound up skipping almost entire chapters that had nothing to do with the history of the unit or the war and seemed more suited to a university social psychology course. Bah and feh. Get The Cruel Hunters by MacLean.
