About Dead Reckoning

A new three-hour PBS series follows war crimes investigators and prosecutors as they pursue some of the world’s most notorious war criminals. The tactics that emerged from those pursuits now inform the effort to expose, prosecute, and punish present day human rights violators whose depredations have left millions dead and displaced.
