Originally published in 1937 as "The Trial of Bruno Richard Hauptmann" this replica reprint in special edition is 565 pages with vintage black and white photos and illustrations from the trial throughout.
On March 1 1932, Charles Augustus Lindbergh Jr., 20 month old son of aviators Charles Lindbergh and Anne Morrow Lindbergh, was abducted from the crib in the upper floor of the Lindbergh home.
On May 12th, the child's body was discovered by a truck driver on the side of a nearby road.
In Sept. 1934, Hauptmann was arrested for the crime. After a short trial he was found guilty and sentenced to death. Despite his conviction, he continued to profess his innocence but all appeals failed and he was executed.
This book details the crime and the trial in what became knows as one of the trials of the century. It also led Congress to pass the Federal Kidnapping Act, commonly called the "Little Lindbergh Law" which made transporting a kidnapping victim across state lines a federal crime.
