During the process of the trials Gilbert became, after Douglas Kelley, the confidant of Hermann Göring, Joachim von Ribbentrop, Wilhelm Keitel, Hans Frank, Oswald Pohl, Otto Ohlendorf, Rudolf Höss, and Ernst Kaltenbrunner, among others. Gilbert also participated in the Nuremberg trials as the American Military Chief Psychologist and provided testimony attesting to the sanity of Rudolf Hess. His 1950 book The Psychology of Dictatorship was an attempt to profile the Nazi German dictator Adolf Hitler using as reference the testimonials of Hitler's closest generals and commanders.

Fort Lauderdale, FL: Quick Series Publishing, 2009. Third Edition [stated]. Spiral bound. Unpaginated (approximately 60 pages). Illustrations (color). Cover has slight wear and soiling. This is AFRRI Special Publication 03-1. Medical defense against radiological warfare is one of the least emphasized segments of modern medical education. Forty years of nuclear-doomsday predictions made any realistic preparation for radiation casualty management an untenable political consideration. The end of the Cold War has dramatically reduced the likelihood of strategic nuclear weapons use and thermonuclear war. Unfortunately, the proliferation of nuclear material and technology has made the acquisition and adversarial use of ionizing radiation weapons more probable than ever. In the modern era, military personnel and their nation's population will expect that a full range of medical modalities will be employed to decrease the morbidity and mortality from the use of these weapons. Fortunately, treatment of radiation casualties is both effective and practical.

This book represents the proceedings of the Second International Symposium on the Pathophysiology of Combined Injury and Trauma,, held at Wintergreen, Va. in February, 1985 that was edited by investigators from the Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute, Bethesda, Md. The term "combined injury" refers to the effects of radiation, wounds, burns, and blunt trauma in various combinations often occurring acutely and simultaneously.
