Uninformed people consider the "Nuremberg War Crimes Trials" as the ultimate proof of the guilt of the German leadership before and during World War II. The transcripts of the proceedings, however, tell an entirely different story.
This volume contains the defense arguments put forward by the main defendants at the trials. It shows that the trials broke every legal precedent and procedure of evidence in the book.
Defendants were refused the right to cross-examine "witnesses", blatantly forged documents were accepted as genuine without question, and evidence indicating torture of suspects was struck out by order of the judges.
In addition, the blatant contradictions in the prosecution arguments (which saw the Germans charged with the exact same behavior as exhibited by the Allies during the war), combined with the persuasive counter arguments from the defendants themselves, provides a fascinating insight into the 1946 lynch-mob proceedings which masqueraded as "trials".
I enjoyed the book. It pointed out TRUE facts about this trial and the defendants, which were withheld from the public at that time and for years to come. The premise basically shows the reader how were this trial in fact a "fair trial of justice", the judgments against some of the defendants would and should have been somewhat different. ... It is an unbiased telling of the actual facts, as we today know them. It claims no innocence of any of the defendants particularly, but points out the many mitigating circumstances that were purposely ignored by the Allies. - Amazon Customer, Amazon.com.
A concise narrative and well researched that gives a revised and perhaps a true account of the Nuremberg trials and lack of justice therein. It was a little short though, I read it in about 4 hours, but it explained a lot. - Jim Hunter, Amazon.com.
THE RE-WRITING OF HISTORY is as old as history itself.
The Annals of Tacitus, for example, mention a "rumor" that Nero burned Rome; this "rumor" was repeated by later Roman historians as "fact". Later writers called this "fact" into question, and demoted the "fact" to mere "rumor".
In 1946, it was a "proven fact" that Nazis made human soap. This "fact" has since become, apparently, merely "rumor" (Hilberg, Destruction of the European Jews: "To this day, the origin of the soap making rumor has not been traced"). The forensically untested "rumor" of Soviet origin (a jar of mysterious stinking material, Exhibit USSR 393) is in the Peace Palace of The Hague. Peace Palace officials show it to eager visitors and tell them it is authentic; but do not, apparently, answer letters from persons asking to have it tested.
In 1943, it was a "rumor" that Nazis were steaming, frying, parboiling, electrocuting, vacuuming and gassing Jews. By 1946, the "gassings" had become "fact", while the steamings, fryings, parboilings, electrocutions and vacuumings remained mere "rumor".
The "evidence" that Nazis "gassed" Jews is qualitatively no better than the "evidence" that they steamed, fried, parboiled, electrocuted, or vacuumed them. It appears legitimate to call this "evidence" into question.
This book contains not a re-writing of history, but a simple guide to historical material which has been forgotten. The 312,022 notarized defense affidavits presented at the First Nuremberg Trial have been forgotten, while the 8 or 9 prosecution affidavits which "rebutted" them are remembered.
Whether the statements of the defense are more credible than the human soap, human hair socks and cannibal hamburgers of the war crimes prosecutors is for the reader to decide.

Carlos W. Porter's Interview to the Blood and Honour website
B&H: Hello, Mr. Porter, may we commence with the most typical question possible: could you please introduce yourself swiftly to our readership?
C.W. Porter: As far as I know I am the only person who ever read the Nuremberg Trial transcript all the way through, not once, but several times. I have three different versions of it. I also have the complete Tokyo Trial transcript, 52,000 pages.
I have an Internet site, with 900 files on war crimes and Nuremberg, including 600 graphics: scans of actual pages from the Nuremberg Trial transcript, scans of the so-called "original" Nuremberg Trial documents, and translations. People quote these things, but they never look at them. Some of these documents have never even translated before. These are documents which most historians have never seen. I have thousands of dollars worth of law books, criminal law, international law, and I have written a number of articles on international law.
Nuremberg is not valid law. Nothing in international law gives the victor power to legislate in international law. Most of the post-war trials had no basis in law; I don't know of any offhand that did. Maybe some of the minor Japanese trials. But I doubt it.
In 1900, Britain invaded the Boer Republics, stole the gold mines, turned the Western Transvaal into a "smoking desert" (in their own words), imprisoned 110,000 women and children in concentration camps where 28,000 of them died, then, after the war, they tried and shot 2 Boer officers for "misusing a flag of truce"! You're wasting your time looking for justice in any post-war trial. They are simply a continuation of the war.
B&H: If I am not mistaken your first publication 'Made in Russia: The Holocaust' deals with the grotesque exaggerations of the Allies concerning the so-called "judeocide". Could you name a few?
C.W. Porter: Steaming people to death like lobsters at 10 "steam chambers" at Treblinka, zapping them to death with mass electrical shocks, blasting them into the Twilight Zone with atomic bombs, killing 840,000 Russians in 30 days at Sachsenhausen with a pedal-driven brain-bashing machine and burning them all in 4 portable ovens, forcing people to climb trees, then cutting the trees down (as a method of murder),frying chambers, quicklime chambers, vacuum chambers, quicklime chambers, etc. etc. I collected about a hundred of these, plus examples of all their grotesque legal irregularities and documentary absurdities. The book is 428 pages long. It discusses the prosecution case exclusively, and is now back in print, available on Amazon.
The book begins with the rhetorical question: If the Germans gassed millions of Jews, did they also...
Carlos Whitlock Porter was born in 1947 in California in a family of Navy officers and lawyers. C.W. Porter studied in Europe, and is a professional translator and member of the Institute of Linguists. He has studied the Holocaust and war crimes trials with detailed patience and precision, including related questions of law, toxicology and chemistry, since 1976. Concerning the International Military Tribunal trial records, C.W. Porter's work exposes these kangaroo courts to have been absurd and hideous miscarriages of justice. The Nuremberg Trial records would be hysterically funny if they were not responsible for over fifty years of suffering and injustice. C.W. Porter thinks that even in our times the "allied" countries try to keep the multiply proven false and unauthentic Holocaust story alive, because that is the only tool that justifies their starting and entering the Second World War, and the deaths of millions of young men who fought for completely false goals, contrary to the real interests of their countries. His main works are "Made in Russia: The Holocaust" and "Not Guilty at Nuremberg".
