Traces the life stories of many of the camp commandants, based on their SS personnel files and on interviews with the few commandants still living and with friends and relations of others. Concludes that, in general, they were men of mediocre ability and shallow personality; what distinguished them from other Germans was their attraction to the military life and their unquestioning identification with Nazism. Most of them volunteered for the SS out of personal and emotional motives. Some were sadistic; others merely "did their duty". They did not make policy, but transmitted it. They did not see their victims as human, and in the course of their SS careers they became inured, by stages, to greater and greater brutality."@en ;
