Affidavit of General Marshall
This document analyzes the real reasons for the Defense to introduce the affidavit of General Marshall during the Defense Summation, after all the evidence had been closed. While the Defense maintained that their reason was show that the "charge made by the Prosecution that the three nations - (Japan, Germany and Italy) - collaborated to dominate the world," this document argues that the Defense were following "the pressure of present world events" and therefore using the document for its political effect. Other topics subsequently discussed in relation to why General Marshall's affidavit should not be admitted include: proven coordination between Germany and Japan, violations of neutrality by Japan, German and Japan's actions regarding the USSR. Each point is brought up and made to show that General Marshall's "conclusion about a lack of close coordination" is false given the access he had to evidence. This document has been marked up and edited, clearly with the intention of reading to the Tribunal the Prosecution's objections to the previously discussed matters.
