In this excellent book the author tells how Douglas Kelley, a young US psychiatrist in the Military Intelligence Corps set out in 1945 to see if the Nazi gang were fit to stand trial.
After exhaustive tests of their personalities and mental state he concluded there was no evidence of psychiatric illness. They commited their heinous crimes fully aware of what they were doing. Only Hess was clearly mentally ill.
They were perfectly sane and responsible for their deeds. Indeed, the drug addict Goring firmly believed that one day the German people would be grateful for what had been done and erect a monument to him.
In 1995 a team of distinguished psychiatrists replicated Kelley's research and arrived at the same conclusions as he had done 50 years earlier.
This absorbing book demonstrates yet again that the perpetrators of sickening atrocities are entirely responsible for their actions, as indeed are those who willingly supported them.
Using primative tests such as Rosarch and ink-blot it was decided that ll were sane and suitable for trial.
However Goring defeated justice and comitted suicide by taking a cyanide capsul hidden in a tooth.
The experiance seemed to have a severe effect on the psychiatrist who became a tyrant to his family and comitted suicide by cyanide poisoning.
