Telford Taylor, distinguished lawyer and chief counsel of the American prosecution of the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg, evaluates what he regards as "the most important and, I believe, successful new entity in the enforcement of the laws of war." An invaluable source, with long excerpts from the actual proceedings, all the more memorable for the author's sure and often critical assessments of all participants. Written with elegant candor.
