Nuremberg: A Nation on Trial

By Werner Maser
Scribner, 1979
368 pp. $16.95

A well-known German historian reconstructs the fate of German leaders in Allied hands; a significant work, based on the proceedings of the International Military Tribunal and on additional extensive inquiries, which recall-among other things-the many pleas of ignorance and innocence. Thus Albert Speer: "It was known in Germany that a stay in a concentration camp was an unpleasant matter." Maser thinks that Nuremberg would have had to be justified by subsequent acts of international justice-which did not occur.
