Book Description

3 April 2013 Schiffer Military History
The first complete resource devoted to the SS-Aufseherinnen -- the female guards of the German concentration camps during World War II. In addition, the role of the girl's youth organisation in developing future overseers, and the eventual recruitment, training, and employment of these women is likewise examined. Professor Brown's timely work fills a void in the terrible annals of Nazism; at last, the women guards and their crimes are subject to public scrutiny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good if brief 24 Jun 2012
Format:Hardcover
I was put off buying the book due to the other review posted on here but thought i would give it a go and so bought it. I am currently writing a dissertation about women in the SS and found the book extremely useful. It provides lists of SS staff members, with information regarding to DOB, where they worked etc. Another very good part of this book are the numerous number of primary sources, for example a photocopy of an exam which women would need to answer in order to get a job in the SS. This book alone provides much information, but when used alongside Brown's other book (The Beutiful Beast, the life and crimes of Irma Grese) they provide a wonderful account of women in the SS. It is important to note however, that this book is mostly bare facts and information about the women. Daniel Patrick Brown is arguably the leading expert when it comes to women of the SS and i would most definately reccomend this book IF THE PRICE WAS LOWER. The cost is very off putting for the information provided, i suggest getting to a library rather than buying it!

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 13 July 2007
By Edith Swanek - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This is a strange book, with no mention of how these women supported one another other than a photo or two of them relaxing together (and I myself have more interesting photos of that from a copy of a 1946 Yank newspaper!), no interviews, no diaries, no mention of whether they testified in post-war trials for or against one another, no mention of what defense their attorneys put up, no mention of the kind of lives those not convicted of anything then lived out, a photo of Himmler inspecting their unit with nary a word of what he said, and virtually no quotes from any of the women themselves. This book almost make one wish someone like David Irving, who might be expected to be prejudiced in their favor but would also certainly have seriously delved into these womens' lives, had written it....

1.0 out of 5 stars big list 3 May 2006
By Michael N. Ryan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
The bulk of this book is an endless list of women's names possibly emplyed as Aufseherins by the SS in the Concentration camps. Added to that is a nice essay about these women and some pictures.

Could use a lot more work.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mainly a Roster 25 Oct 2005
By William Markley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
While there are 2 or 3 very brief essays in this book, the vast majority of pages consist of a roster of women who helped run the Nazi concentration camps. I gave this item only 2 stars in part because the title should more accurately reflect this. If you want extensive narrative you'll need to look elsewhere.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth the money 1 Nov 2006

Not worth the money. The only thing you learn is how little is known about the women guards

1.0 out of 5 stars Expectations Denied 2 Jun 2008
By Christopher E. Skoog - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
"Camp Women" turned out to be nothing more than a roll-call list of names
with a few photographs thrown in. There was very little in the way of any
relevant narrative or biographical discussion. The brief description given
on-line never mentioned this critical detail, in short, I think I could've
been better informed by Amazon. com.
