4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent account of the Nuremberg Trial preparations, 28 Nov. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Interrogations: The Nazi Elite in Allied Hands, 1945 (Allen Lane History) (Hardcover)
As the war in Europe approached its conclusion the Allied leaders were faced with the dilemmas of who should be held responsible for the atrocities of Hitler's Nazi State and what punishment should be applied to the perpetrators. Despite calls for summary executions the Allies chose to embark on a legal process which culminated in the Nuremberg Trials. In this book the author gives a detailed but readable account of the preparations for the trial. The first part of the book includes chapters concerning the judicial background to the trial, the selection of defendants, the charges they faced and denial strategies used by the defendants. The second part of the book contains extracts from the actual interrogation transcripts of some of the most pre-eminent defendants. These transcripts provide an unique insight to the workings of the Third Reich and the attitudes of its rulers following defeat. The book is well written and provides an interesting insight into the problems facing the Allies as they strove to convict their enemies of charges which seemed undeniable. The interrogation transcripts also provide a fascinating view of the Nazi regime from its leaders. They address all areas of the Third Reich including Hitler's pre-war plans, his attitude to his allies and enemies, the economic and industrial effort to supply the war effort and the origins and prosecution of anti-Semitic policies. An excellent book that will appeal to all those with an interest in World War Two.
