Lasting more than two and a half years, the Tokyo War Crimes Trial became the longest legal proceeding ever, producing reams of records that set the precedent for modern military tribunals. In observance of the 70th anniversary of the trial’s adjournment in 1948, the National Archives hosts the U.S. premiere of The Tokyo Trials, a documentary series produced by the Chinese SMG News, which sent crews to the United States (and to the Archives), Germany, and Japan for exclusive video records and interviews with scholars.
