From the cover: Sentenced to long prison terms at the Trial of the Major War Criminals at Nuremberg, seven of Adolf Hitlers closest associates Rudolf Hess, Albert Speer, Karl Donitz, Erich Raeder, Walther Funk, Konstantin von Neurath, and Baldurvon Schirach were to have become forgotten men at Berlins Spandau Prison. Instead, they became the focus of a bitter four-decade tug-of-war between the Soviet Union and the Western Allies a dispute on the fault line of the Cold War itself that drew in heads of state, military strategists, powerful businessmen, vocal church leaders, old-world aristocrats, international spies, and neo-Nazis. Drawing on long-secret records from four countries, Goda provides a new perspective on the terrifying shadow thrown by Nazi Germany on the Cold War years and how that shadow helped to influence the Cold War itself.
