This is good enough to instigation another Nuremberg style prosecution and hangings. The instigators are long gone but they can be executed Posthumously.
- Dresden, Hamburg..murder of non combatants by air raids.
- Prussian mass rape
- Nuclear weapons on Japanese cities
- Murder of POW. Operation overlord
- Rheinwiesenlager..death by neglect of POW
- Murder of civilians by Chinese.
- Dachau massacre..POW
- Kocevski Rog Massacre..murder of POW and non combatants.
- London cage murders
- Operation tear drop tortures
Dresden was a legitimate military target, which only killed around 25 000 people, same with Hamburg.
That was Soviets.
The only one on this list which actually could reasonably paint the Allies as evil war-criminals, but in the end, I think it was justified. These people killed in the Blast would have been sent to die by the Japanese if the U.S. decided to naval invade. What's 500 000 lives sacrificed in exchange of 5 000 000 of them? In the end, seeing as this was more of a military target, and not the deliberate slaughter of civilians, I wouldn't count it as a war-crime, but I'd understand dissent here.
D-Day was pretty big, specific examples here?
The Americans actually had of the lowest mortality rate of all POWs: 0,15%. Compare that to Soviet POWs held by the Germans: 57,5%(!). Until you can prove that there was systematic mistreatment there, it's just an unproven allegation.
Specific examples, please.
Some court martials were planned for this but never given out. Eventually, a top secret report concluded that the men would have been found guilty if court-martialed. You see, the Americans actually prosecute their war-criminals.
Legitimate military target as the Allies couldn't know whether the U-boats were actually carrying V-1 Rockets and were relying on German propaganda.
All in all, nothing compared to German war-crimes...
