Americans, Germans and war crimes justice : law, memory and "the good war"

Author: James J Weingartner
Publisher: Santa Barbara, Calif. : Praeger, ©2011.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
During World War II, both Americans and Germans committed war crimes, but the ways in which the U.S. Army dealt with crimes committed by their own soldiers were drastically different from its treatment of German atrocities. In fact, by the standards the U.S. Army used to try enemy commanders for war crimes, General George Patton could have been deemed a war criminal.
