'Roland's compelling account is highly readable.'
Nicholas Goodrick-Clarke, Professor of History, University of Exeter
Anyone wishing to understand the nature of evil can do no better than look within the pages of this book. When Hitler's 'thousand-year Reich' collapsed after twelve years of increasing repression, how were those responsible to be punished? Hitler, Himmler and Goebbels took their own lives to evade justice, but that still left Hermann Goering, Albert Speer, Hitler's one-time Deputy Fu¨hrer Rudolf Hess and many other prominent Nazis to be brought before the Allied courts.
This is the story of the Nuremberg Trials - the most important criminal hearings ever held, which established the principle that individuals will always be held responsible for their actions under international law, and which brought closure to World War II, allowing the reconstruction of Europe to begin.

History books are to teach you of our past, so the same things can be avoided in the future. This book was an essential read to remind us of past atrocities.
I teach History and this book was going to be a wonderful source for my class. Bought it, d/l'd it, but it won't open. Has anyone else had trouble with this book?
The author went into great details about the defendants and how they presented themselves at trail.
