PREFACE 
In April 1949, judgment was rendered in the last of the seriesof 12 Nuernberg war crimes trials which had begun in October
,1946,
and were held pursuant to Allied Control Council Law No.10. Far from being of concern solely to lawyers, these trials are ofespecial interest to soldiers, historians, students of internationalaffairs, and others. The defendants in these proceedings, chargedwith war crimes and other offenses against international penallaw, were prominent figures in Hitler's Germany and includedsuch outstanding diplomats and politicians as the State Secre-tary of the Foreign Office, von Weizsaecker, and cabinet ministersvon Krosigk and Lammers; military leaders such as Field Mar-shals von Leeb, List, and von Kuechler

and other basic jurisdictional or administrative documents areprinted in full hereinafter.The proceedings in these trials were conducted throughout inthe German and English languages, and were recorded in full bystenographic notes, and by electrical sound recording of all oralproceedings. The 12 cases required over 1,200 days of court pro-ceedings and the transcript of these proceedings exceeds 330,000pages, exclusive of hundreds of documents books, briefs, etc. Pub-lication of all of this material, accordingly, was quite unfeasible.This series, however, contains the indictments, judgments, and
