I have read on H-War that prestigious journals in history will not publish articles on military history. I think this is because military historians are methodologically backward (Foucault, anyone?) and ideologically suspect. So I was pleased today to get the TOC of the Journal of Modern History--Volume 88, Number 2 | June 2016--and notice this: "Take (No) Prisoners! The Red Army and German POWs, 1941–1943" by Mark Edele. Alas, the University of Chicago does not offer free fulltexts, but an abstract is here:
My impression--I have not read this article, but will once I get to a university library--is that there has been a great deal written about German treatment of Red Army captives. Jews, commissars and women were often shot at once. Millions were allowed to starve to death before the Nazis realized their utility as slave labor. But I think there has been much less written about what Edele discusses--on the spot killings of Germans.
I also note that this issue of JMH also has a major review article on military history:
