As the war in Vietnam raged on in the early 1970s, the mainstream media refused to air this documentary showing testimony, and even confessions, of U.S. war crimes; today critics consider it one of the greatest ever documentaries. The Baby Boom generation that fought the war thought it could rely on the ideals of the Geneva Conventions. These service members, some of them guilt-ridden, believed the Nuremberg trials for Nazis had established anyone’s culpability for “just followers orders.” “Winter Soldier” shows brutal realities for which the public was not yet ready.
