This book was written by members of the War Crimes Commission and its secretariat. It is rightly claimed to be more than a history of the work of the United Nations War Crimes Commission. Its object is in the words of Lord Wright, the chairman of the Commission, "to exhibit some crucial features of the development during the War of 1939-1945 of the law of war crimes, for the instruction of those who may be minded to gather up the rules which have emerged and to analyze their import and character." There can be no doubt that the authors have succeeded in their task and that the book will take a prominent place among the post-war contributions to public international law." - J. Northey,8 U. Toronto L.J. 449 (1949-50)
