Well rounded book on the Nazi war trials at Nuremberg after World War II. The authors managed to convey the importance of the trial - the reliance on the idea of law rather than violence to settle criminal behavior.

The book identifies all the defendants,their alleged criminal activities, and the results, with emphasis on those that were sentenced to death. Interesting, but not captivating, this book describes the Trial very well. ( )

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.

I am very disappointed that this appears to be the first review of this book, because it is fantastic. Anyone with even the slightest interest in WW2 really should read this. I would very much like the authors to consider a second, follow-up title considering the trials and fate of many of the lower ranking SS men etc, about which, little has been written. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0689114966, Hardcover)

“Fascinating. . . . The Tusas’ book is one of the best accounts I have read.” —The New York Times

Here is a gripping account of the major postwar trial of the Nazi hierarchy in World War II. The Nuremberg Trial brilliantly recreates the trial proceedings and offers a reasoned, often profound examination of the processes that created international law. From the whimpering of Kaltenbrunner and Ribbentrop on the stand to the icy coolness of Goering, each participant is vividly drawn. Includes twenty-four photographs of the key players as well as extensive references, sources, biographies, and an index. 24 black-and-white illustrations
