The end of the Second World War presented the Allies - Britain, France, Russia and the United States - with a very large and contentious problem. What to do with the surviving members of a regime that had brought death and misery to millions? Their solution - to place them on trial - was both novel and historic, and has influenced principles of justice now being applied in Yugoslav and Rwandan war crimes cases, as well as in Saddam Hussein's courtroom. "Nuremberg: Evil on Trial" relates its dramatic events through a selection of the actual words spoken by the prosecutors, the judges, and the defendants, including Hermann Goering and Rudolf Hess, and offers authentic insight into the workings of the Nazi state, the mind-set of its rulers, and the momentous decisions they made.
