Titel:The Dellums Committee Hearings on War Crimes in Vietnam 
Samenvatting: In April, 1971, in the week preceding the massive Mayday demonstrations in Washington an ad hoc panel of Congressmen met in the House Caucus Room in the Cannon Office Building and heard four days of testimony from Vietnam veterans - testimony concerning war crimes committed by American troops in Vietnam. The group, chaired by Rep. Ronald V Dellums of California, although denied official committee status, went ahead the first (and, to date, only) Congressional inquiry into the war crimes question. In Rep. Dellums' words, the hearings took place "in spite of, not because of, the House of Representatives." This volume is the complete transcript of those proceedings - the record of four days of direct testimony that revealed to the American public the horrifying extent to which criminal action had become part of the American campaign in Indochina. It is the only such record available, an historical document of the first importance, an insight into one of the most compelling moral issues of our time.
