The Dachau Trials were held for all war criminals caught in the United States zones in occupied Germany and Austria, as well as for those individuals accused of committing war crimes against American citizens and its military personnel. The trials, which were held within the walls of the former Dachau concentration camp, were conducted entirely by American Military personnel whose legal authority had been conferred by the Judge Advocate General's Department within the U.S. Third Army.
