American Prisoners of War Betrayed By Their Government

The fate of prisoners of war and missing in action is one of the darkest chapters of the Cold War. Tens of thousands of American soldiers European survivors were sent to unknown destinations during World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War.

American soldiers captured in the Cold War – the enemy needs them as hostages and bargaining counters. Their own government denies their existence, leaving them to their fate.

Some escape and find their way home. Others die in captivity – expecting the whole time that their government will “leave no Soldier behind” and rescue them. Given the last century of American empire, this film is a shameful account of US government coverups, denials, and mishandling of POW situation. The Red Cross has also been complicit – hiding records of prisoners of war to this day.
