In this work, Zabecki proves conclusively that Dönitz was innocent of the charges leveled against him at Nuremberg by the Allies.

Whether you agree or disagree with Zabecki's conclusions, this book provides a very concise and readable account that covers Dönitz's background, with background on the International Military Tribunal, and details the two counts that Dönitz was eventually convicted of—crimes against peace and war crimes—and why the Zabecki believes he should not have been found guilty of either.
