WWII Forgotten Story

 
 
Reply Fri 13 Jan, 2012 04:40 pm
I heard a story about some American WWII soldiers who killed a number of German soldier prisoners after the Americans found out that these German Soldiers massacred a number of our soldiers previously.

The press was there and did not report this retaliation because they "UNDERSTOOD"

Does anyone have any specific details on this incident?

@michael73052,
Chances are this wasn't a solitary isolated incident. "Take no prisoners" is a time-honored battle cry.

@farmerman,
The Malmedy massacre was the murder of American POWs by their German captors. The OP is talking about a retaliatory killing of German POWs by American GIs.

@Lustig Andrei,
Im sure that there was a retaliatory "Hit" on Germans AND a trial for the Mqlmady massacre

@farmerman,
There was a trial, all right. A trial for war crimes of the German guards and the camp commandant. I think Wikipedia probably has an entry on it. Haven't looked it up yet.

I think it was the Chenogne massacre on 1.1.45 that I am refering to. I heard a story that the news reporters at the scene refused to write about this.

Any further details, would be helpful.

@michael73052,
I can find nothing whatever on Chenonge massacre. Tried various spellings. Chenogue. Chenongue. Etc. No entries in Google or Yahoo.

@Lustig Andrei,
Dunno why a link to that Wikipedia piece doesn't show up on Google or Yahoo. But thnx for posting that. I learned something today. Came as no surprise but it's not something I knew beforehand.

That the reporters present would not have reported itcomes as no urprise. The wartime press was not into exposing any misbehavious by "our boys."

Duuuhhhhhh.

Not just the wartime press, Merry. Consider all the slaughters, the terrorism, the war crimes that have never been reported.

Ignorant Americans are everywhere.
