Explore one of the most tragic and mysterious stories of World War II, the murder of 115 American POWs by German tanks during the Battle of the Bulge.
On December 17, 1944, at the height of the Battle of the Bulge, 115 American POWs were shot down senselessly by a Nazi tank detachment. It was one of the most blatant and brutal of all Nazi war crimes. OUR CENTURY takes a hard look at the Malmedy Massacre and the war crimes trial that followed. Interviews with survivors vividly recount the horror and death of the massacre, while extensive footage of the trial offers a point-by-point look at the case.
Explore the many strange twists of the tale like why was the death sentence of the officer found most responsible commuted, and how did he come to die in France almost thirty years later? And see how Senator Joseph McCarthy, in his infamous hearings against the army, charged that the Germans responsible for the crime were brutalized by their American captors!
