War in the Wild East: The German Army and Soviet Partisans

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

In Nazi eyes, the Soviet Union was the ""wild east,"" a savage region ripe for exploitation, its subhuman inhabitants destined for extermination or helotry. An especially brutal dimension of the German army's eastern war was its anti-partisan campaign. This conflict brought death and destruction to thousands of Soviet civilians, and has been held as a prime example of ordinary German soldiers participating in the Nazi regime's annihilation policies.
