This is a book for students of law -- particularly International Law. It focuses in excrutiating detail about the discussions of how the Tribunal came to develop the charges against the defendants but skims over the evidence presented. If you want to know what the defendants told their interrogators, this book isn't for you.
The book has a decidedly pro-British slant; according to the authors, if it wasn't for the British prosecutors and judges, the Tribunal would have been a disaster. American prosecutor Robert Jackson is a particular target of the authors. According to their interpretation, it's a wonder the guy could even tie his shoes.
Most distressing, however, are the countless typographical errors, probably from scanning the book into Nook format. It looks as if no one bothered to proofread, and seriously detracts from the work.
There are also fact errors: According to the appendix, Jodl apparently took three months to die on the gallows because his year of death is listed as 1947.
