Stern Justice: The Forgotten Story of Australia, Japan and the Pacific War Crimes Trials description

While the Nuremburg Trials are rightly renowned for bring Nazis to justice, the Pacific War Crime Trials are less well known.  Australia was the prime force behind the establishment of the Tribunals that sought to hold the Japanese to account for the atrocities committed in WWII.  Raising important questions of justice, vengeance, and who bears ultimate responsibility for a nation’s crimes, Stern Justice is an impressive account of a neglected part of history.
