Dr. Lattimer was a U.S. Army surgeon who had access as a consulting urologist to the Nazi leaders tried for war crimes at Nuremberg. This book records his professional impressions of those men and their medical conditions. Included is a lengthy chapter on Adolf Hitler's health problems, with a resulting (and surprising) diagnosis of advanced Parkinson's disease. More important than the text, which needs more editing and some scholarly documentation, are the photographs, many showing personal artifacts of the Nazi leaders. More than 400 are reproduced, many from the author's collection and not available elsewhere. World War II buffs will probably enjoy, historians less so. For public libraries with adequate book budgets.AEdward Gibson, Langston Hughes Memorial Lib., Lincoln Univ., PA
