The road to Nuremberg
Years after the event, the Nuremberg trials remain the most important (and controversial) international legal assault ever launched against aggression and atrocities. Yet, until recently, the full story behind the decision to go to Nuremberg could not be told because the essential documentation was unavailable. Now, this book provides the first authoritative account of how the Allies finally agreed to try the surviving Nazi leaders under international law, rather than summarily shoot them without trial.
