... because the "just following orders" defense had been so successful for other Nazis before.

Have you anything except a fervent need that it be so to support your fantasy that Eichmann, at this point, thought he would get anything but the noose? Because in July of that year, he explicitly told the court that he fully expected the death penalty.
