Lord Russell of Liverpool, who served as a chief legal adviser during war crimes trials at the end of World War II, recounts the horrific brutality perpetrated by the Nazi government throughout Europe. Using evidence submitted to trials such as Nuremburg, Russell compiles the terrible histories of concentration camps, murders of civilians, lynching, and other atrocities to build a damning indictment of the Third Reich. Simon Vance's arresting performance conveys the right amount of intrigue and shock at the horrors witnessed under Hitler's rule, making Scourge of the Swastika a chilling and remarkable experience.
When discussing the German war crimes of the Second World War, modern histories have focused on the Holocaust. While the Final Solution was a unique and unparalleled horror, German atrocities did not end there. The Nazis terrorized their own citizens, tortured and murdered POWs, and carried out countless executions throughout occupied Europe. Lord Russell of Liverpool was part of the legal team that brought Nazi war criminals to justice, and from this first-hand position, he published the sensational, best-selling The Scourge of the Swastika in 1954. Liverpool shows that the actions of the Third Reich, including the Holocaust, were illegal, not merely immoral.

I learned more than I thought I already knew, brought out the human tragedy in detail.
Knights of the Bushido. Unvarnished and not white washed for pc purposes. Sticks to the facts, sickening as some were.
Can't really narrow that down.
That the men committing these horrors believed this was the right thing to do, had no regrets of their actions. That was constantly emphasized in the book, it was not just one moment
I have listened to many books on the subject. This was the best description of the horrors that took place in the concentration camps inEurope during WWll.
there was no favorite character. It was simply new inforatmion that has not been commonly known because it is too graphic.
reality can be worse than fiction
we should all know what the human spirit is capable of enduring, and inflicting
