Abstract : When the subject of enemy war crimes is mentioned, most people think of the Nuremberg War Crimes Trials, but few are familiar with the overall U.S. Army war crimes trials efforts in World War II or what, if any, was done concerning enemy war crimes during Korea or Vietnam. This article reviews the history of the Army's involvement in investigating and prosecuting enemy war crimes from World War II to the present. It includes a section on lessons learned and a review of the current Judge Advocate General's Corps organization for investigating and prosecuting enemy war crimes.
