Abstract These transcripts record the beginning of the prosecution's case against the Nazi defendants on the charges of conspiracy to seize totalitarian control of Germany and prepare the nation for aggressive war. A large part of the two court sessions reflected in these transcripts is taken up with prosecution counsel's recitation of evidence pertaining to the latter charge, that is, the Nazi state's economic preparations to wage aggressive war. This document is a typewritten copy made on paper of uneven quality. Pages 262-267 are very brown and brittle; many other pages show significant browning. At least three different typewriters were used to make this copy.
