I have acquired a very rare book about German Grand Admiral Karl Doenitz at the Nuremberg Trials ( Amber publishingCo. - H.K. Thompson Jr and Henry Strutz)
The report is a real eye opener. I am a WWII U-boat historian as well as a modeler and the contents of the book was VERY much of a surprise.
Hundreds and hundreds of the best known Admirals, Generals, fiel Marshalls, authors, statesmen, jurists and even Presidents - had the greatest contempt for the Nuremberg Trials as more to do with revenge than justice and a creation of Stalin who himself was the world's most horrific criminal having murdered over 40,000,000 totally innocent non-combatants - HIS OWN COUNTRYMEN!
A hand full of the signatures to support the position of Doenitz - were Rear Admiral Dan Gallery, Vice Admiral Charles Lockwood, Fleet Admiral Chester Nimitz, President John F. Kennedy, General Matthew B. Ridgeway, Edgar N. Eisenhower ( brother of Dwight Eisenhower), Professor, author and Spreme court Justice, William O. Douglas - and almost FOUR HUNDRED more of the world's leading military leaders. civic leaders, authors, professors and heads of state.
I will keep this book for my grandchildren, so that in the maze of revisionist history [ lies - to be polite] they may know truth.
One of the greatest hypocricies of the Nuremberg 'kangaroo court' was the fact that the German defendants were accused ( knowing admission of false evidence) by their Soviet Marxist prosecutors of the horrific war crime of the cold-blooded murder of several thousand Polish officers in the Katayn Forrest. As history has later revealed the TRUTH - it was, of course "our friends and allies" - the Soviets who had committed these henious crimes.
This was only one of the interesting 'twists' of truth and justice so common at the unpresidented and contemptuosly illegal so-called war crimes tribunals of Nuremberg in the Summer of 1946.
If anyone is interested in the information in the unique book - contact me and I will be glad to make a copy of specific comments by the specific famous people involved as well as a complete list of those who came to the aide of Doenitz's reputation. A mind-blowing chronicle of WWII Submarine history as pertaining to Admiral Doenitz at Nuremberg.
