A Passing Fury Summary


A Passing Fury: Searching for Justice at the End of World War II by A. T. Williams

A Daily Telegraph Book of the Year Shortlisted for the CWA Gold Dagger for Non-Fiction 2017 After the Second World War, the Nuremberg Tribunal became a symbol of justice in the face of tyranny, aggression and atrocity. But it was only a fragment of retribution as, with their Allies, the British embarked on the largest programme of war crimes investigations and trials in history. This book exposes the deeper truth of this endeavour, moving from the scripted trial of Goering, Hess and von Ribbentrop to the makeshift courtrooms where the SS officers, guards and executioners were prosecuted. It tells the story of the investigators, lawyers and perpetrators and asks the question: was justice done?

"Williams... carries the reader along in his fluent and passionate prose" -- Richard J. Evans * Guardian *
"A haunting, sensitive and thoughtful study" -- Nigel Jones * Daily Telegraph *
"Absorbing... Williams skilfully reveals a chaotic world in which war crimes investigation teams, generally lacking even the most basic resources, were left to do their best in extremely trying circumstances" * Scotsman *
"Williams has put together an original polemic against our assumptions about these trials, including those at Nuremberg." -- David Herman * New Statesman *
