Horace R. Hansen was a man who followed the Allied front and witnessed the Nazi
depredations of World War II. He was also the chief prosecutor at the Dachau
war-crimes trials. Witness to Barbarism is a posthumously published manuscript
written by Hansen and based upon his eyewitness experiences, letters written
home during the war, and his hopes for preventing horror in the future. A
profound, firsthand look at the worst of humanity in some of the darkest times.
Witness to Barbarism also reveals Hitler's military-situation conference
stenographer's descriptions of how Hitler conducted his conferences and made his
wartime decisions. Witness to Barbarism is a unique and welcome, and very
highly recommended addition to World War II Military History Studies reference
collections and supplemental reading lists.
