From School Library Journal
Grade 8-Up Following a thorough introduction that provides novice historians with background information, this series entry uses primary-source documents organized in a coherent chronology to demonstrate how the Allies set a precedent and brought Nazi war criminals to justice. Each of the five chapters begins with a narrative preface and contains two to four essays, each with an explanatory introduction. For example, "Preparation for Trial" includes articles by Supreme Court Justice Robert H. Jackson, lead council for the prosecution, and Seymour Peyser, one of the prosecutors responsible for building the cases. The closing chapter, "Reporting on the Trial," gives the perspectives of two journalists responsible for covering the yearlong drama. With its important documents, this work will help budding historians and researchers make sense of a complex time and groundbreaking legal action. -Mary R. Hofmann, Rivera Middle School, Merced, CA
