Ann Tusa, a former history professor, and John Tusa, named "Journalist of the Year" by Royal Television Society, met as undergraduates at Cambridge University and married one year later. The authors ofThe Berlin Airlift, they live in London.Review:
A sound and striking account of this great trial. (Economist)
Fascinating...The Tusas' book is one of the best account I have read, brining to life not only the trial itself but also the scores or principal characters among the defendants, prosecutors, and judges. I often wondered if any other gathering in history brought together under one roof so many curious and quirky individuals. The Tusas describe each one with insight, humor [and] fairness. The author tell amusing tales of how some of the Nazi bigwigs were pursued and found. (William L. Shirer The New York Times, Author of Berlin Diary and The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich)
A gripping account of the major postwar trial of the Nazi heirarchy in World War II. The Tusas bring to light the remarkable logistic problems facing the participants and they lucidly present the enormous problems faced by the prosecutors. Select points enliven their tale, from the whimpering of Kaltenbrunner and Ribbentrop on the stand to the icy coolness of Goering. This should be required reading for any lawyer or historian, but I would recommend it to anyone. The Tusas' writing style is smooth and their arguements are well thought out. (United Press International)
Ann and John Tusa brilliantly capture the atmosphere of the court [and] the character of the defendants. Lucid, well written, and solidly based on original material, The Nuremberg Trial is also a splendid advertisement for the practice of chronological history—the old-fashioned narrative, as opposed to the modish, thematic approach. However, the Tusas do not simply tell a skillful tale. They raise important questions about the validity of international tibunals of justice. (Piers Brendon, Author of The Dark Valley: A Panorama of the 1930s Times(London))
This valuable account affords a dispassionate view of the players as well as the issues. It demythologizes both the heroes and the villians. (Alan M. Dershowitz, Author of Supreme Injustice)
Highly readable. (Bradley F. Smith, Author of Reaching Judgement at Nuremberg, The Shadow WarriorsL OSS and the Orgins of the CIA, and The Road to N American History Review)
Clearly focused and thoughtful, the Tusas' overview displays a remarkable and scholarly historical grasp. (Bernard Levin, Author of Speaking Up and Taking Sides Times, (London))
[The authors], who are English, blend familiar sources and unpublished material, into a comprehensive and narrative history...This work successfully highlights the practical difficulties of conducting proceedings intended to set major precedents in international law. (Library Journal)
The Nuremberg Trial is well researched and presented, tightly argued and balanced in its judgements...Essential reading. (Wolfgang Mommsen, Author of Theories of Imperialism, Imperial Germany 1867-1918, and Max Weber and German Politics, Author of Theories of Imperialism, Imperial Germany 1867-1918, and Max Weber and German Politics Times Literary Supplement, (U.K.))
In its scope and complexity, the Internation Military Tribunal that tried the surviving Nazi leaders of World War II poses a massive challenge for historians. This well-researched account...provides many insights into the unprecedented problems facing Allies in conducting the ten-month long trial...[The Tusas] examine in detail the trial's planning, the suspicions, and differences among the Allies over legal approaches and the uncertain groping through the hundreds of thousands of German documents that became the basis for indictments and cases. They illuminate the issues with impressive thoroughness and offer incisive views of prosecutors, judges, and defendents. (Publishers Weekly)
