Between November 1945 and October 1946, 22 high-ranking Nazi officials defended themselves before the International Military Tribunal. Reproducing significant sections of the trial record, this volume also outlines the background to the trial, traces the preparations made by the principle actors in the courtroom, and considers how the prosecution, defense, and tribunal dealt with the counts against the accused.
"This book is superb history, compellingly told. Marrus brings his lucid historical talent to the organization of the primary documents, which largely tell the story for him. This is exactly what the college student seeking a thorough (but not compendious) overview of the subject needs."
— Richard Weisberg, Cardozo Law School
