Newly declassified documents reveal shocking information about government-sponsored human experiments in the years following WWII. It is now clear that thousands of soldiers were exposed--many times unwittingly--to toxic chemicals and other dangerous situations in the name of science and military advancement. This entry in the History Channel's DECLASSIFIED series looks at the harsh facts that have recently come to light, and seeks to uncover further details about how and why the government used the enlisted men as test subjects.
Description by New Video Group:
Since 1945, hundreds of thousands of military personnel became human guinea pigs in experiments and intentional exposures conducted by the U.S. government--often without their knowledge or consent. Aided by recently declassified documents, we reveal the truth about human experimentation, once hidden as a threat to "National Security".
