This concluding chapter underscores that the Tokyo Trial is a reminder that ambitious criminal trials may lead to unsatisfactory results. But it also takes the view that a trial was important and that its legal foundations were largely sound. It sums up the problems of the trial — a case of great historical, material, and personal scope in one proceeding run by sometimes inept personnel, the application of ex post facto crimes against peace and overdrawn conspiracy, but also highlights the stronger points such as the war crimes convictions. The ambivalent conclusion is a product of the complexity of the story.
