War Crimes

 

 

This heading covers a variety of war crimes, many of which are still being investigated today.

Probably the most significant works in this category are the series of nine volumes published in the War Crimes Trials Series published by William Hodge of Edinburgh between 1948 and 1951,  which complement the Notable British Trials series in the same bindings of red cloth with gilt titles.  Many of these have retained their original dust-wrappers and are now highly collectible.

The titles issued in this series are The Belsen Trial, ‘Double Tenth’Trial, Dulag Luft Trial, Von Falkenhorst Trial, Gozawa Trial, Hadamar Trial, Natzweiler Trial, ‘Peleus” Trial and the Velpke Trial.  The hardest to find edition is the Dulag Luft Trial, but we do carry most of the others in stock.  Prices range from £35 - £55 per volume.

We also carry a small stock of such items as:
