An indictment of the I.G. Farben Industries, on trail in Germany at the close of the war for fostering and encouraging aggressive warfare. The author was chief prosecutor at the trial and documents the evidence presented in this book, though the body of the text is a personalized account of the events associated with the trial. He charges I.G. Farben with being knowingly an active arm of the Wehrmacht in taking over property and enslaving the people of Europe and sustains excitement and interest at a high level despite the complexity of the subject. Now when it would seem that the industrialists involved in Germany's crime against civilization are being given opportunity to pursue their way virtually unhampered, this book should serve as a warning finger.
