William Fratcher reviews General Telford Taylor's 1970 book, Nuremberg and Vietnam: An American Tragedy. In the book under review, General Taylor appears to approve the conviction of crimes against the peace by the first or international Nuremberg Tribunal in the case of high military and government officials who participated in Hitler's planning of wars of aggression but to question that tribunal's holding that Admiral Doenitz waged aggressive war -merely by commanding a flotilla of submarines. Now that twenty-two years have elapsed since he sought their conviction of that offense, General Taylor appears to be thankful that the tribunal acquitted all of the defendants in the "High Command Case" on the charge of crimes against the peace.
