You will never see such honesty or bravery as that of the men here who tell of things they never spoke of outside their platoon. Nor hear of more terrible acts. But you will come to understand more about war and its consequences, and what we allow to happen in our name. In 1971 Vietnam Veterans from all over the US came together to give testimony to the war crimes they had committed or witnessed in Vietnam. 'Winter Soldier' is the only record of that time. At once a powerful indictment of US foreign policy and a deeply moving film showing the truth of war and the shocking crimes committed in the name of democracy. Called by many the greatest anti-war film ever made 'Winter Soldier' won't just shock you, it will make you cry. This feature is jam packed with extras to be found nowhere else including 1500 FBI files on the investigations into the soldiers and the events of 1971.
