Very factual and unemotional account,
This review is from: Nuremberg: Evil on Trial (Paperback)
This book is an excellent, unprejudiced account of the events leading up to and surrounding the Nuremberg trials. It details the strategies and arguments used by the Allied Powers in bringing the remaining figureheads and quasi-figureheads of the Nazi command to justice, through the use of memoirs and transcripts of the individuals involved in the proceedings as well as giving excellent insight into the emotional and mental states of the accused from denial of involvement in the various charges faced in the court to resignation of death through said memoirs. The author has researched this book very well and it is evident in the balanced approach that has been taken to describe the arguments used by both prosecution and defence. In addition to this, the author critiques the approaches and errors made by the Allied Powers in the preparation of this - the biggest trial in history. I enjoyed this book for what it is - a factual, unemotional telling of what is a legendary court case.
