About this Item

ISBN-13: 9781616190330; ISBN-10: 1616190337. Signed by Ferencz With a New introductory Essay by Benjamin Ferencz Taylor, Telford. Nuremberg and Vietnam. An American Tragedy. Chicago: Quadrangle Books, [1970]. xxvii, 224 pp. Reprinted 2010 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. With a New Introductory Essay entitled "Will We Finally Apply Nuremberg's Lessons?" by Benjamin Ferencz, Chief Prosecutor for the United States at the Nuremberg War Crimes Trial, author of Defining International Aggression: The Search for World Peace (1975), Adjunct Professor of International Law, Pace University and founder of the Pace Peace Center. ISBN-13: 9781616190330; ISBN-10: 1616190337. Paperback. Signed by Benjamin Ferencz on the half-title page. $39.95 * A title in The Lawbook Exchange series, Foundations of the Laws of War. Originally published three years before the withdrawal of U.S. troops in 1973, this important book is not a polemic, but a sober account of the Vietnam conflict from the perspective of international law. Framed in reference to the Nuremberg Trials that followed the Second World War, it describes problems the United States may have to face due to its involvement in the Vietnam conflict. After presenting a general history of war crimes and an account of the Nuremberg Trials, Taylor turns his attention to Vietnam. He also examines parallels between actions committed by American troops during the then-recent My Lai Massacre of 1968 and Hitler's SS in Nazi-occupied Europe. Telford Taylor [1908-1998] was chief counsel for the prosecution at the Nuremberg Trials. Later Professor of Law at Columbia University, he was a vigorous opponent of Senator Joseph McCarthy and an outspoken critic of U.S. actions during the Vietnam War. His books include Sword and Swastika: Generals and Nazis in the Third Reich (1952), Grand Inquest: The Story of Congressional Investigations (1955) and The Anatomy of the Nuremberg Trials: A Personal Memoir (1992).
