Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Senator Christopher J. Dodd (Connecticut) presents letters his father wrote home while serving as a prosecutor at Nuremberg.

Senator Thomas Dodd began his career of public service as prosecutor at the Nuremberg trials. Chris Dodd recently discovered his mother's collection of letters his father wrote during the trials. Through his father, Chris Dodd learned not only the scope of Nazi Holocaust but also the importance of the rule of law. Our allies would have preferred summary executions of the Nazi leadership, but Chris Dodd said his father gave "to these defendants that which they did not give to their victims, and the world is a better place for their example."

Review:

"While monotonous and slightly repetitive, narrative connoisseur Michael Prichard reads Senator Dodd's real-life tale in a classic, radio reporter manner that transports the listener back to the mid-1940s. Prichard's narration is clear as day; his brilliant reading is an ideal fit for the material. The story, composed of letters from Dodd's father during his time as a lawyer at the Nuremberg trials, is a personal and genuine tale that offers a fresh outlook into a complex moment in human history. The narration is cool and unwavering, never too emotional or sentimental despite the raw emotion of Dodd's letters. This nostalgic approach will appeal to older listeners, although younger ones might be bored by the sameness of his tone. In the end, the material itself is quite fascinating and Prichard's old-time narration has a distinct charm. Simultaneous release with the Crown hardcover (Reviews, July 9)."
