Storyline

The Wereth Eleven retraces the steps eleven black GI's from the 333rd Field Artillery Battalion took when their unit was overrun by Germans at the start of the Battle of the Bulge. Their 10-mile trek from their battery position to Wereth, Belgium would be the last journey of their lives as a local resident turned them in to an SS scouting party. Subsequently all eleven were butchered and killed in one of the least understood, as well as unknown, war crimes of WWII. Written by Rob Child

The Truth always comes out!
20 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I consider myself a freelance historian in the WW2 discipline, and I had no idea the WERETH 11 existed. History looks back at the men of MALMEDY as the wrongfully executed soldiers of the Battle of the Bulge. However, there were several more accounts just like MALMEDY and this documentary brings one these travesties to life!

From a detailed background and explanation of what the Nazi's called THE ARDENNES OFFENSIVE, to a detailed analysis of the American Front lines. You as a viewer are easily brought back to December of 1944.

The film was very detailed by interviewing eye witnesses, veterans, and descendants of the fallen. Overall it is a very touching story that explains good will always prevail over evil. If you're a history lover, especially the WW2/Battle of the Bulge genre, this film is for you.
