Browning explains this horrifying act by stating “along with the elderly and sick, infants were among those shot and left lying in the houses, door ways, and streets of the town” (59). Although opposing viewpoints may say that these men of the battalion were cruel and heartless, Browning states that even after the shooting of those children the policemen would report back “empathically” to each other.
