The Nuremberg trials were a series of military tribunals, held by the Allied forces after World War II, which were most notable for the prosecution of prominent members of the political, military, judicial and economic leadership of Nazi Germany who planned, carried out, or otherwise participated in the Holocaust and other war crimes. The trials were held in the city of Nuremberg, Germany, and their decisions marked a turning point between classical international law and contemporary international law.

Major Hamilton served in WWI, was an attorney, and re-enlisted at age 50 to serve in WWII. He was the man in charge of the denazification of Germany and reestablishing the postwar court system in the Allied occupied area.
