Approximately 10,000 "War Crimes Trials" have been held since 1945. Trials of Japanese military personnel ended in 1949, yet "war crimes trials" of Germans and Eastern Europeans... More > continue to date. Almost invariably, the charge is "violation of the laws and customs of war," derived, in turn, from international conventions signed at the Hague in 1899 and 1907. That these trials have little or no basis in law is clear from the wording of the treaties which are said to have been violated. The illegalities of "war crimes" proceedings include the admissibility of oral and written hearsay; the introduction of the concept of "conspiracy" into international law (unknown prior to 1945); the total lack of any pre-trial inquest or forensic evidence; and trial before a court itself composed of actual "war criminals."< Less

Not Guilty at Nuremberg: The German Defense Case By Carlos Whitlock Porter
eBook (ePub): $2.99

Uninformed people consider the "Nuremberg War Crimes Trials" as the ultimate proof of the guilt of the German leadership before and during World War II. The transcripts of the proceedings,... More > however, tell an entirely different story. This volume contains the defense arguments put forward by the main defendants at the trials. It shows that the trials broke every legal precedent and procedure of evidence in the book. Defendants were refused the right to cross-examine "witnesses", blatantly forged documents were accepted as genuine without question, and evidence indicating torture of suspects was struck out by order of the judges. In addition, the blatant contradictions in the prosecution arguments (which saw the Germans charged with the exact same behavior as exhibited by the Allies during the war), combined with the persuasive counter arguments from the defendants themselves, provides a fascinating insight into the 1946 lynch-mob proceedings which masqueraded as "trials".< Less

Very little is published on the repression of dissenting historical research and political opinion in Europe. "Censorship" is something that happens only in Burma, China, Turkey, Egypt, and... More > other far-away places. Censorship in Europe is simply a "matter of criminal law"! The "law" is almost completely one-sided and the defendants are almost invariably so-called "right-wingers" and "nationalists". In Germany, dissidents can be charged with 3 different offences: "popular incitement", "incitement to racial hatred", and "defaming the dead". The statute of limitations is 10 years, as against 3 or 6 for most serious felonies. No transcripts are made of oral argument before the courts, and no substantive defense is possible: defendants are permitted to argue technicalities only. Lawyers "guilty" of defending their clients too vigorously are commonly imprisoned as well. One case, however – the records of which are reproduced here – took an unexpected turn when the wild-card defendant refused to cooperate...< Less

Many people consider the Nuremberg War Crimes Trials as final evidence of German guilt during World War II. This book reproduces the actual International Military Tribunal (IMT) documents used in... More > that trial, revealing an astonishing concoction of forgeries, lies and outrageous fabrications which were presented—and accepted—as fact by the court, such as: steam chambers, electrical chambers, instant cremations with atomic energy, and many others. These original reproductions show the manner in which the Germans were blamed for the Soviet-atrocities at Katyn and normal court produces and rules of evidence were abandoned in what was little more than a medieval witch hunt, conducted according to medieval legal procedures and methods of proof. This is an indispensable guide for anyone wishing an introduction to the actual IMT documents, reproduced in facsimile, instead of someone’s “interpretation” of them.< Less
Advance to Barbarism: The Development of Total Warfare from Sarajevo to Hiroshima By F.J.P. Veale

Who started the mass bombing of civilians in World War II? This book proves, with clinical detail, that it was the Allies, and not the Germans, who started the “blitz” and once underway,... More > carried it to the most extreme murderous ends. The author, a legally-trained expert, shows how European conflicts for 200 years prior to 1939 had an unwritten agreement to avoid involving civilians in warfare and gives several historical examples where victors exercised non-vindictive restraint in dealing with the vanquished. This code of conduct, however, vanished in an orgy of hatred in the 1939–1945 conflict. Veale is meticulous in his arguments and cites cabinet meeting transcripts, memoirs of those involved in the decision-making, and many other sources to prove that the British and Americans were the first and the best at killing innocent civilians—and that if there had been any justice at Nuremburg, the accused would have included the Allied leaders as well.< Less
