Editorial Reviews

Economist
A sound and striking account of this great trial.
United Press International
A gripping account of the major postwar trial of the Nazi heirarchy in World War II. The Tusas bring to light the remarkable logistic problems facing the participants and they lucidly present the enormous problems faced by the prosecutors. Select points enliven their tale, from the whimpering of Kaltenbrunner and Ribbentrop on the stand to the icy coolness of Goering. This should be required reading for any lawyer or historian, but I would recommend it to anyone. The Tusas' writing style is smooth and their arguements are well thought out.
Times(London) - Piers Brendon
Ann and John Tusa brilliantly capture the atmosphere of the court [and] the character of the defendants. Lucid, well written, and solidly based on original material, The Nuremberg Trial is also a splendid advertisement for the practice of chronological history—the old-fashioned narrative, as opposed to the modish, thematic approach. However, the Tusas do not simply tell a skillful tale. They raise important questions about the validity of international tibunals of justice.
Alan M. Dershowitz
This valuable account affords a dispassionate view of the players as well as the issues. It demythologizes both the heroes and the villians.
American History Review - Bradley F. Smith
Highly readable.
Times, (London) - Bernard Levin
Clearly focused and thoughtful, the Tusas' overview displays a remarkable and scholarly historical grasp.
Times Literary Supplement, (U.K.) - Wolfgang Mommsen
The Nuremberg Trial is well researched and presented, tightly argued and balanced in its judgements...Essential reading.
