Justice Delayed: The Restoration of Justice in Bavaria under American Occupation, 1945-1949

Synopsis

"In 1945, at the end of World War II, American occupation forces began the daunting task of rebuilding democratic society in war-shattered Germany. Key to this reconstruction was the establishment of a democratically oriented legal system. Justice Delayed examines how the United States attempted to reconstitute a democratic legal system in Bavaria on the ruins of Hitler's "thousand-year Reich.""--BOOK JACKET.
