Publisher's Summary

Audible brings to life through dramatic performance the 1945-1946 radio broadcast reports covering the greatest courtroom drama of the 20th century - the Nuremberg trials. The original broadcasts have been lost forever, but the verbatim text - written by Harold Burson, founding chairman of one of the world’s leading public relations firms, Burson Marsteller, who at the time was a reporter for the Armed Forces Network - has been newly interpreted by an ensemble of some of our fine actors. This original production, published here for the first time and only in audio, blends journalism, history, re-enactment and performance, and reimagines what it was like to experience first-hand this groundbreaking trial and to witness close-up some of the most infamous figures in recent world history: members of the Nazi ruling class. The production is being released on the anniversary of the opening of the first and most famous trial, November 19, 1945.

    "Now there was radio!"
    What made the experience of listening to Report from Nuremberg the most enjoyable?

    This audio book is well worth a listen for the colorful first person descriptions from the AFN reporter Harold Burson about the Nazi leadership and the tenor of the Nurember trial. In that courtroom Cpl. Burson literally had a front row seat to history, and he did a terrific job in doing what radio reporters should do - bring the audience into the courtroom by his vivid descriptions. The names of the defendants mean little when read in the history books, but he tried to separate them in character from the "colorful scoundrel" (Goering) to the dutiful officers (Keitel, Jodl) to the bureaucratic monsters (Sauckel, Seyss-Inquart).


    What did you like best about this story?

    The frank description of Hermann Goering's takeover of the trial as he took the witness stand. I had heard after-the-fact criticism of Justice Jack's cross-examination, but Cpl. Burson confirmed it in his same-day commentary.

    "Like I Was There"

    This audiobook is a collection of reenacted radio broadcasts providing news covering the Nuremberg War Crimes trials. Given all that has been written about the trial it is interesting to hear the contemporary radio reports. It is almost like CNN updates on the trials. The descriptions of the defendants and their dress, mannerisms and personalities were of great interest. I commend Audible for creating these reenactments and making them available. I enjoyed listening to them. The narrators were all excellent. The sound of the mechanical typewriter at the start of each broadcast helped me imagine what it must have been like to hear these broadcasts live.

    ""you are there" type"

    very interesting "you are there" type situation with the radio broadcasts and running "real time" updates from the trial. some good details in the description of the Nazi's on trial etc. and the limited info at the time (though we have more perspective from this distance and that adds to the horror at times). highly recommend for something different and for history buffs.

    "Disappointed. OK book but short on detail."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Not much depth of information about the trials or defendants. Interesting but I didn't learn much.
