The Vietnam Veterans Against the War, or VVAW, launched a media campaign from January 31st, 1971 to February 2nd, 1971 in order to inform the public and raise awareness of the atrocities and war crimes committed by the US Army in the Vietnam War. The VVAW presented evidence of these crimes and directly linked the military policy and the crimes committed in Vietnam.

The gathering was organized in Detroit, Michigan and it lasted for three days. Among the participants were 109 Vietnam veterans, around 20 civilians, academics and medical personnel. They openly spoke about the war crimes that they either committed or witnessed between 1963 and 1970.

The event did not get the expected media coverage, but a number of journalists from Detroit recorded the gathering and the testimonials which were later used in the making of this documentary in 1972. The transcript of this documentary was entered by Senator Mark Hatfield into the Congressional Record. The content of records was discussed at the Fulbright Hearings in April and May 1971, with Senator J. William Fulbright in the chair of the United States Senate Committee on Foreign Relations.
