It places the victims and Allied Medical Intelligence officers at centre stage, while providing a full reconstruction of policies on war crimes and trials related to Nazi medical atrocities and genocide.

Abstract. The British response to Nazi medical war crimes has not been as extensively studied as that of the Americans; this is largely due to the fact that Britain did not decide to utilise the results of Nazi research to the same extent as its ally (Hunt L (Bull Atom Sci –24, )).

Germany’s War by John Wear refutes this characterization of Germany, bringing history into accord with the facts.
