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 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).

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.Published on February 22, 2014 by Elsita
