Description
A New York Times bestseller, this riveting account of the Nuremberg trials by a legendary journalist is simply "astonishing" (Francine Prose). Sent to cover the war crimes trials at Nuremberg for the New Yorker , Rebecca West brought along her inimitable skills for understanding a place and its people. In these accomplished articles, West captures the world that sprung up to process the Nazi leaders; from the city's war-torn structures to the courtroom security measures, no detail is left out. West's unparalleled grasp on human motivations and character offers particular insight into the judges, prosecutors, and of course the defendants themselves. This remarkable narrative captures the social and political ramifications of a world recovering from the divisions of war. As engaging as it is informative, this collection represents West's finest hour as a reporter.
