Following the defeat of Germany in WWII, the Allies determine that there must be an accounting of German war crimes. Twenty-four Nazis, representative of all sections of military and civilian life are chosen to stand trial for the crimes of conspiracy to commit aggression, commission of aggression, crimes during war and crimes against humanity. The preparations for the trial, the trial itself and its aftermath are shown through the eyes of Chief Prosecutor Robert Jackson and through the eyes of Reichsmarshal Hermann Goering, the ranking Nazi defendant.

Most of the actors playing the defendants are Canadian, the country where the miniseries was filmed. Herbert Knaup, who plays Albert Speer, is one of the few actual Germans in the cast. See more »

Parts of this made for TV mini-series were very good and others were not. It seemed that Alec Baldwin was sort of feeding his ego in his role as the Chief Prosecutor. It was a tad heavy on the Herman Goring parts and the other defendants ended up as just window dressing. Michael Ironside delivered a performance as a first class jerk jailer. Then again maybe the real life American Colonel was. Some interesting topics were brought up. Mostly what Goring said was true the Germans were being tried because they lost the war. The German generals obeyed orders as military leaders are supposed to and ended up swinging on a rope because they remained loyal to their country. One of the better TNT originals.
