The SS Cavalry Brigade was a unit of the Waffen-SS that differed from other German military formations as it developed a 'dual role': SS cavalrymen both helped to initiate the Holocaust in the Soviet Union and experienced combat at the front.

Fegelein's Horsemen and Genocidal Warfare offers the first detailed study in English of the SS Cavalry Brigade as both an instrument of genocide and a combat unit in the occupied Soviet lands. Pieper's thoughtful and well-argued book relies on a thorough examination of archival sources. There is much to admire in this detailed, though brief studya significant contribution to the literature on the Holocaust and the Waffen-SS. (Paul J. Wilson, Holocaust and Genocide Studies, Vol. 31 (5), 2017)

The book is fundamentally a study of what Pieper calls the SS Cavalry Brigade's 'dual role' as both a political paramilitary force with ideological goals and as a conventional military unit. a detailed account of a Waffen SS unit with a complex history and a penetrating study of how this unit carried out numerous atrocities. Pieper has produced a fascinating book of value to anyone studying the Holocaust, the SS or the Eastern Front. Highly recommended. (Jonny Briggs, The Second World War Military Operations Research Group, secondworldwaroperationsresearchgroup.wordpress.com, December, 2015)


Henning Pieper was educated at the Universities of Freiburg, Germany, Nottingham and Sheffield, UK. His research focuses on the Waffen-SS and Germany's difficult process of coming to terms with the Nazi past.
