Masters of Death is Richard Rhodess chronological account of the Third Reichs Einsatzgruppen (a hand-picked task force) and its death work--the executions of 1.5 million people, Jews and non-Jews--in Russia and Eastern Europe from 1941 throughMoreMasters of Death is Richard Rhodess chronological account of the Third Reichs Einsatzgruppen (a hand-picked task force) and its death work--the executions of 1.5 million people, Jews and non-Jews--in Russia and Eastern Europe from 1941 through 1943.

Rhodes sees these operations (the victims were, almost exclusively, shot) as a ghastly prelude to the subsequent (and much more written-about) horrors of the death camps. In chilling--and occasionally excessive--detail, Rhodes describes the killings and the reasons behind the Reichs cautious, rather than precipitous, escalation of the same: the militarys concern for German and world opinion- the need to improve methodology- and finally, the need to condition the troops, thereby avoiding disabling trauma.

Rhodes makes good use of firsthand accounts and outlines the effects the larger war (Pearl Harbor- the failure to defeat Britain) had on Hitlers attempted obliteration of European Jewry. His chapters on the nature of evil seem hurried and not particularly fresh.
