Editorial Reviews - Booknews

In dramatic and accessible prose, Harris, who served at Nuremberg on the staff of the US Chief of Counsel, distills the massive documentary evidence presented at the historic trial of Nazi war criminals. Using verbatim accounts by key figures in the Nazi regime, he tells the story of Hitler's rise to power, of Nazi planning and execution of war crimes and crimes against humanity, and of the final destruction of Nazi tyranny. The first edition was published in 1954. This revised and expanded edition contains new sections on war crimes trials in national courts since Nuremberg, and on the events leading to the adoption of the Rome treaty in 1998. Annotation c.
