Licensed Mass Murder;: A Socio-Psychological Study of some SS Killers - Henry V. Dicks

The concept is interesting. Unfortunately, the psychological theories are way out of date (although I'm sure they were cutting edge in 1971).  It also uses too many big, and frankly, made up words just to lend it more of an air of academic gravitas. The author does too much paraphrasing of the former SS individuals' stories.  Let *them* tell it, man. How do I know where their voices stop and where yours begins?
