Description

Wartime rape has fascinated the public and various commentators for centuries yet few in-depth examinations of the subject exist. The offenders here are US soldiers from World War II - the 'greatest generation ever.' Highly readable and impeccably documented, this book focuses not only on information found in once-confidential official documents, but allows the reader to hear the voices of the accused and their victims. Behind-the-scenes legal battles over which soldiers should receive the death penalty while others went to prison, and what the public saw as unfair military justice conclude this extraordinary study of wartime rape.

Author Biography

J. ROBERT LILLY is Regents Professor of Sociology/Criminology at Northern Kentucky University. An internationally renowned criminologist, in recent years Lilly has examined the disproportionate use of capital punishment against black soldiers by the US military during World War II. In addition to his work on alternatives to traditional forms of incarceration, he has been a major contributor to the development and implementation of electronic monitoring in the US and Europe. His present work on crimes committed by US soldiers during WW II extends beyond the European 'Theatre of Operations', and is now focused on all US Army theatres of war for World War II. Has been a Visiting Scholar at All Souls College, Oxford University and Visiting Professor of Sociology, University of Durham, England. Currently he is co-editor of The Howard Journal of Criminal Justice.
