The "Memorandum of the Generals" for the Nuremberg Court

According to their own statement, these men did not feel themselves obligated to oppose Hitler. Their credo was allegedly to "stay completely away from politics"�an assertion that provokes a question mark in Halder's case since he belonged to the military opposition along with Oster, Canaris, Beck, and others up until the fall of 1939. From a practical point of view, the memorandum is a statement for the defense.
