Abstract

The connection between sexual and military violence and their mutual influence are a relative recent field of research. This book is one of the first on the Second World War and the sexual violence by soldiers of the German Wehrmacht. It examines how the Wehrmacht dealt with sexual crimes in the areas occupied by German troops using German courts-martial proceedings. Based on the requirements of German criminal and military jurisdiction, the author shows the legal basis for the prosecution of sexual crimes by German soldiers, illuminates the charges and the respective circumstances in a direct comparison between the western and eastern fronts and analyzes the judgments and the changing criteria for sentencing.
