The Second World War. At an American military base, PE: African-American Sergeant Waters is shot dead. The investigation into the murder was entrusted to Captain Davenport, a black army lawyer. White officers and black soldiers are amazed at this appointment. Having started interrogations, Davenport quickly realizes that he should not count on help in the search for truth …

In 1984, when “A Soldier’s Story” was released, the jury of many competitive film festivals loved this kind of movie, because then it was already talked about the speedy denial and destruction of any manifestation of segregation on the basis of race. So it’s very easy to understand why the rather strong, but still not the masterpiece “Army History” film became a three-time Oscar nominee. An experienced and competent director Norman Juison confidently put it on, made accents in it, and brought out a fair share of the detective in it, where the viewer is given the opportunity to gradually and carefully assemble the mosaic of the situation leading to the murder from pieces.
