The Proposed Trial of the Former Kaiser, 29 Yale Law Journal 75 (1919)
The treaty of peace with Germany contains many novel features. One of them is that which provides for a special tribunal to try the ex-Emperor for a "supreme offense against international morality and the sanctity of treaties." This, of course, is a very different thing from a proceeding against a nation to penalize it for disregard of its international obligations, or to enforce against its will the provisions of a treaty. The former Emperor is to be prosecuted simply as a wrong doer.
