Summary
During World War II, 1.2 million African-Americans served in America's Armed Forces. Fully 125,000 served overseas, and 708 were killed. Among these were the Wereth Eleven. Their story was lost to history, until now. These eleven men were ruthlessly murdered by the Nazi SS during the Battle of the Bulge. Weaved together are exciting visual effects, never-before-seen archival footage, and compelling interviews to detail one of the least-known atrocities committed during World War II.
