Historically Inaccurate

The author seems to have confused Rudolf Hess, Hitler’s deputy who was tried at Nuremberg, with the commandant of Auschwitz named Rudolf Hoess (also pronounced Hess).

The first RH flew to Great Britain in 1941 and, to the best of my knowledge, had no dealings with the concentration camp. He was tried at the first Nuremberg trial. The second RH was tried in Poland, not Nuremberg, for crimes against humanity.

captivating provocative profound

a captivating narration of events that were both provocative and profound. this is an accurate retelling of events. and the foundational basis for what we is Humanity understand today constitutes war crimes as an understanding between All Nations.

An excellent and well researched summary of the Nuremberg Trials

I only wish it offered longer and more in-depth profile of the criminals, themselves.

This was a great listen. I found the video mentioned on YouTube and Its hard to believe how people treat other people. the story in the audiobook was well written.

Rather trite

I’m no expert on Nuremberg but still found nothing new in this book which overall was a disappointment. No quotes from Göring, for example, that one hasn’t heard before. In addition, no arresting insights or analysis of Nazi mentality. This book just comes across as a sort of pot pourri, with no feats of interest.

I was horrified at first to hear this narrated in such a high male voice: I suppose one rather expects such a serious subject to be delivered in a deep, sombre one! Once I got used to the octave I became fed up of his unfailing sing-song tone in every sentence with no differentiation, and missed a few chunks by being lulled into sleep. No great loss!

Well worth a listen

better than a lot of other books based on the subject. Excellent narration.
I was mildly amused when the Americans(quite rightly) are laying into the Nazi's for their disgusting treatment of the Jews , but happily ignoring segregation laws in the deep south.

Expose tyranny wherever you find it

An example from history of what happens when governments are left unchecked by the people! Every man and woman on earth needs to read this book!

Great book

Considering the book is covering a topic that already has a lot of literature written on the topic it was still very informative and I liked its presentation.
