Mission at Nuremberg : An Allied Army Chaplain and the Trial of the Nazis Paperback / softback


Lutheran minister Henry Gerecke was fifty when he enlisted as an army chaplain during the Second World War.

At the war's end, when other soldiers were coming home, Gerecke was recruited for the most difficult engagement of his life: ministering to the twenty-one Nazi leaders awaiting trial at Nuremburg. Based on scrupulous research and first-hand accounts, including interviews with still-living participants, Mission at Nuremberg takes us inside the Nuremburg Palace of Justice, into the cells of the accused and the courtroom where they faced their crimes.

As the drama leading to the court's final judgments unfolds, Townsend brings to life the developing relationship between Gerecke and Hermann Georing, Albert Speer, Wilhelm Keitel, Joachim von Ribbentrop, and other imprisoned Nazis as they awaited trial.
