A Kid's Review on December 28, 2010
Format: Hardcover
What occurred in Nanjing in 1937, was an abomination. One of many unfathomable cruelties inflicted upon humankind by humankind during the Second World War. But the history of the war in China and the suffering of the Chinese people at the hands of the Imperial Japanese Army (and sometimes their own country men) has been under reported, perhaps due to the isolation of China from the West following Mao's postwar victory over the Nationalists. Worse, most efforts to record the extreme brutality and the suffering inflicted upon China's citizenry, including this one, are incessantly hounded by modern day Japanese revisionists who seem intent upon convincing the world that their fathers invaded China and most of the Pacific rim to hand out candy to children and find homes for stray cats. This book is a powerful, shocking, disturbing, even sickening record of an atrocity. As uncomfortable as it may be, this book needs to be seen to understand the war. If you can locate a copy, buy it, read it, and show it to all who would try to rewrite history.

hey, here is the japanese cannibalism:

The 1987 Japanese documentary film Yuki Yuki te Shingun (Onward Holy Army) contains interviews with Japanese war veterans who confessed to engaging in cannibalism during the New Guinea campaign. Several autobiographies by Japanese veterans of that campaign also make explicit references to cannibalism. (Tanaka, 1996, p. 112)

My recent discovery of extensive reports of the Australian War Crimes Section and records of war crime trials by the Australian military has made it possible to undertake a more comprehensive analysis of the practice of cannibalism committed by the Japanese in New Guinea. I also obtained U.S. National Archives documents that refer to Japanese cannibalism in New Guinea. (Tanaka, 1996, p. 115)

It is clear from these reports that the widespread practice of cannibalism by Japanese soldiers in the Asia-Pacific War was something more than merely random incidents perpetrated by individuals or small groups subject to extreme conditions. The testimonies indicate that cannibalism was a systematic and organized military strategy, committed by whole squads or by specific soldiers working within the context of a larger squad. This is particularly so in the case of the Indian POWs and Formosan workers, who had outlived their usefulness as laborers and were now regarded by their captors as human cattle, as a food supply. The moral and psychological bearings of the Japanese soldiers and guards were transformed to such a degree that the act of cannibalism and even the murder of prisoners for the purpose of cannibalism became a normal occurrence rather than an extreme and grotesque activity.
