A year ago allegations about
Lord Aldington's involvement in events leading to the forcible repatriations of thousands of Cossacks and Yugoslavs were minutely examined in a celebrated legal case - a case which was to vindicate him and result in the largest award of damages ever made in a libel action. But what of the wider story? A British
Betrayal returns to southern Austria and investigates what happened there 45 years ago, with the help of new evidence, much of it from victims who speak for the first time on television: they include a Yugoslav who was unjustly handed over to Tito, saw his comrades massacred and survived five days in a mass grave. British officers involved, like Nigel Nicolson , also tell their own stories.
