Publisher's Summary

Senator Christopher J. Dodd (Connecticut) presents letters his father, Senator Thomas Dodd, wrote home while serving as a prosecutor at the Nuremberg trials.

Thomas Dodd began his career in public service as a prosecutor at the trials. Chris Dodd recently discovered his mother's collection of letters his father wrote during that time. Through his father, Chris Dodd learned not only the scope of the Holocaust but also the importance of the rule of law. Our World War II allies would have preferred summary executions of the Nazi leadership, but Chris Dodd says his father and his colleagues gave "to these defendants that which they did not give to their victims, and the world is a better place for their example".

    "Not as advertised"

    I listened to over an hour of this book, and in that time the author supplies only 3 lines from 1 of his father's letters The first 75 minutes at least has nothing to do with documenting the Nuremberg trials. This book is in fact simply a justification of Democratic Party policies on the war in Iraq, and a position paper to support a run for the presidency.
