Publisher Description

A “fascinating” and comprehensive account of the trial of Nazi war criminals following World War II (The New York Times).
 
For ten months, from November 1945 to September 1946, an International Military Tribunal methodically tried twenty-two major figures in the Nazi hierarchy for their war crimes, including Hermann Goering, Rudolf Hess, Albert Speer, and Martin Bormann. Each participant is vividly drawn—from the icy coolness of Goering (who would commit suicide in his cell after being found guilty) to the whimpering of Security Chief Erns Kaltenbrunner and Nazi Foreign Minister Joachim von Ribbentrop to the professionalism of American prosecutor Robert H. Jackson. The Nuremberg Trial brilliantly recreates the proceedings and offers a reasoned, often profound, examination of the processes that created international law, standards that still guide prosecuting crimes against humanity to this day.
