(Göring making an eloquent of his war crime responsibilities by resorting to so-called war theories such as I did not want a war,nor did I bring it about, I did everything to prevent it by negotiation....)The only motive which guided me was my ardent love of my people, its fortunes,its freedoms, its life. And for this I call upon Almighty God and the German people as my witness." Everyone agreed that Sir David Maxwell-Fyfe, a star prosecutor with some of the other Nazis, had allowed Göring to get the better of him.
(A.N. Wilson After the Victorians

Q: Does "a star prosecutor with some of the other Nazis" mean that this well-known British law professional was well-known among some Nazis?
Thanks a lot

    "...Sir David Maxwell-Fyfe, a star prosecutor of some of the other Nazis...
