Format: Paperback
For those who enjoyed TNT's Nuremburg movie and would like to develop a more complete understanding of the trial, "Justice at Nuremburg" is for you. Author Robert Conot does a lot more than just recount the trial of the leading Nazis. He gives a full portrayal of their crimes and details their actions while they were in allied custody both before and during the trial. Conot also gives the background on the leading allied prosecutors and judges as well as detailing the increasing Cold War friction that surrounded the trial. The Nuremburg trial set the standard for international war crimes tribunals as we know them today. Many precedents were established that are still with us. But it is the fascinating (and revolting) stories of the defendant's themselves that make this book so compelling.

Format: Paperback
I can recommend this book to anyone wanting a basic knowledge of the Nuremberg trial and the atrocities that it exposed. My only complaint is that the book often drifts from the subject of the trial itself to general Nazi and Holocaust history, which is fine unless you've already read a good deal about these subjects in other books. One more issue is that Conot's mini-biography of Hitler, found at the end of the book, relies too much on speculation about the cause of Hitler's madness. (Can the root of Hitler's madness really be reduced to the view that he might have had syphilis?) Still, Conot manages to find some nuggets of information that I have not seen elsewhere, and when he does stay close to the trial it makes for highly intriguing reading.

For anyone who wants to know about the Nuremberg Trials, you must read this book. Canot gives us a real deal of the trial. He gives us an in to the processes of how the Trial worked and how the Justices felt. He tells the History of the Tiral as if you were right there. And that is a trait that not every book has. As an active reader of the Nuremberg Trials, I whole heartedly suggest and push for the reading of this book, in orfer to fully understand the true meaning of this gret event.

The Washington Post in its 1983 review of the book said "Conot's 593-page account of Goering, Hess and cronies in the docket is alive with drama and melodrama"; a comment I wholeheartedly agree with. Indeed, it was this aspect of the book that most engaged me as the author really brought the trial and its leading personalities to life.

In addition, in order for the reader to understand the crimes of the accused, the author necessarily provided some historical background. To that end, Conot did an extraordinary amount of research. (He told the Washington Post that he read more than 50 million words of material.)

However, all this historical background information, for this reader, made the book, at times, seem like another book (a book on the history of the Third Reich) as it was quite lengthy.

But don't let my last comment put you off. This is an excellent account of the trial.

Sadly (just for reader information) Mr. Conot died at age 82 in Los Angeles in 2012.

I have read many, many accounts of the original IMT from all angles in previous books and articles and seen many documentaries and movies based on the subject. This book was a most thorough account of the event and was able to offer even more previously unknown information surrounding the defendants and the prosecution of the cases against them, as well as a bit of inside information about the key players and "personal" behind-the-scenes reports, which are generally left out of other accounts.
I just finished the book recently and can say that I was surprisingly satisfied and somewhat enlightened about a subject that has many miles on it already. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has a definite interest in the WW2 era in general and the first International Military Tribunal held in Nuremberg after the war. It is well written and an easy read as well that will keep you reading (not full of unnecessary technical or legal terms, etc).

I absolutely love this book! It was a bit long and dealt with many shocking and painful events, but it documented the events to a T! The International Military Tribunal did a great job prosecuting these war criminals for their heinous acts. This book was somehow able to achieve what others on the subject could not, the hidden truth behind the story. I commend the author (Conot) for taking the tough stance of the political approach of other countries to the grotesque undertakings of the Nazi regime. If you are interested in history and this story, this is the book you must read!!

Absolutely the best book on the subject of the Nurembur trials. Having read three other accounts, this book stands out as the best written and most informative.

Narrative is well organized and interesting , although it is focused on the legal matters of the trial. I was expecting a psychological profile of the accused.
