No formal investigations or prosecutions were ever made concerning American and British massacres of Wehrmacht and Waffen-SS Prisoners of War (due to lack of political will or other practical and political reasons). Allied Forces committed similar atrocities both before and after the Malmedy massacre. According to American historian and Professor Stephen Edward Ambrose, who interviewed around 1,000 U.S. combat veterans, roughly 30 % told him they had seen U.S. troops kill German Prisoners of War. U.S. Army Major-General Raymond Hufft admitted when reflected on the war crimes he authorized: If the Germans had won, I would have been on trial instead of them.
