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.

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.

Radio broadcasts covering the trial

This is a wonderful treat for students of WWII. It is the armed forces network reports from the trials. They interview many different people, so you get to know the terminology and setting very well. The reporting quality of the AFN is excellent, a real treat. In fact, it feels like the trial is happening now without knowing the outcome. They don't cover the executions, so don't get your hopes up for a big ending. It's the unknown at the beginning that is so interesting. I went through it twice, which I highly recommend.

Fascinating Perspective on Nuremberg Trials

It's an interesting perspective; very riveting! Extremely well done. However, not an in-depth historical review.

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.
