Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
British soldiers may very well have believed that. No doubt so did the SS and the mooks who guarded death camps. And as the latter have learned, justice may come for you at any time.

In the UK's case, they're bound by international law to investigate and prosecute war crimes, and responsibility applies at all levels of the chain of command. The fact that someone else orders a soldier to pull the trigger doesn't absolve them of guilt - its just means you need to put more people in the dock.
