Best of the numerous books I've read on Nuremberg, truly excellent,
This review is from: The Nuremberg Trial (Paperback)
I could not urge anyone enough to buy this book - an engrossing tale of the trials and the participants. I found the political and legal arguments concerning the moral authority of the court very interesting and some of the remarks attributed to the chief gaoler, Col Andrus, hilarious. Perhaps the best aspect of the book's coverage is the description of the relationships between the various defendants and those of the captives and their lawyers. The political wrangling between the four powers is also well covered.
Anyone with even the slightest interest in WW2 and all lawyers really should read this.
