Abstract:

"By prosecuting war crimes, the Nuremberg trials sought to educate West Germans about their criminal past, provoke their total rejection of Nazism, and convert them to democracy. More than all of the other Nuremberg proceedings, the High Command case against fourteen of Hitler's generals embraced these goals, since the charges -- the murder of POWs, the terrorizing civilians, the extermination of Jews -- also implicated the 20 million ordinary Germans who had served in the military. This trial was the true test of Nuremberg's potential to inspire national reflection on Nazi crime ... H?bert's study ... draws extensively on the voluminous trial records to reconstruct these proceedings in full ... Crucially, she also examines the West German reaction to the trial and the intense debate over its fairness and legitimacy, ignited by the sentencing of soldiers who were seen by the public as having honorably defended their country"--Jacket.
