Japanese brutal killed and torture European POWS during the world war 2.

According to the British "Daily Mail" reported on 6th, the Far East fighting were more brutal than people think in world war 2, the British historian Max Hastings's book, "Revenge: Fight to Japan (1944-1945) ", disclosed the Western Allies what a shock after discovered the Japanese abuse European POWS.
That was January 1945, the British Army 14th Division across the border to Mandalay, Myanmar, In a victory, they found a lot of evidence that the Japanese abuse of prisoners. some British soldiers had been stripped of boots, with wire wrapped around a tree upside down, cool beaten to death. This is further stimulated the British hatred of the Japanese soldiers. In the UK, the Japanese proved to abuse POWS far beyond the battlefield. Those lucky to escape pows , tell about more extreme brutal Japanese abuse European POWS stories, and British politicians and officials fear the Japanese will be intensified retaliatory torture those European POWS who are still in their hands. Don't let these scandals completely exposed.
In 1942, the famous "Bataan Death March", many of U.S. POWS were killed, European pilots were brutally beheaded, the U.S. government hide for several months before the witness's testimony was public . Allied officials reluctant to admit situation so bad, until January 1945, a so-called Foreign Affairs Committee concluded only in some remote areas have the phenomenon of abuse POWS.
Just a few weeks later, a large number UK and Australia POWS release from Myanmar and Philippinesthe , counter with their own
experience, At that time the officials involved in release of all POWS were shocked to their environment: where hunger prevails, disease prevalence, tens of thousands of prisoners died due to overwork, or because of minor breaches add to torture or beheading death. a quarter of POWS was be killed in Japanese prison camps. Japanese do exactly the same like Nazis do with Jews and Russian, but the United States, Britain and Australia publics are still very shocked, even in the situation at that time, can't understand Japanese flagrant violation of European human rights.
The begin of Pacific War, the Philippines, the Netherlands East Indies, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Myanmar and other places have been occupied by Japan army.Many Allied soldiers became Japanese prisoners . When the surrender prisoners were being detained in Manila, Singapore, Hong Kong or Rangoon waiting ruling, they absolutely didn't expect to the hell waiting for
them.A Japanese war correspondent who described the U.S. POWS he saw - "a group from the arrogant nation, they had to accept the Imperial Japanese military contempt. "When I see them, feel they are just a group of mixed hybrid offspring, had no dignity, and Japanese soldiers look handsome, I'm proud of myself as Japanese."
"Those who didn't eat were first batch of the dead," Paul Luolutesi corporal said, "I bury a lot of people look stronger than
I am, because I never refuse eat any thing. One time, Australian Peter Snow found an inch long maggot in foods.he just simply said:" a little beauty, go away. "" We have to imagine them as Christmas pudding, raisins, or What other good things.
A shipyard in Osaka, two hungry British POWS eat a big tub of lard, which is used to lubricate sewer, so prior to adding arsenic, two POWS so lost their lives.
Thomson in his private diary reads: "Every day we are a walking day by day. Drived to do this and that, I learned to had no any hope of life, no longer have any feelings."
Yangon Stephen Peter from Philip camp wrote: "We have become heartless, ruthless, people who often bet on who will next to die. Of course, must try to save the sick, but when the inevitable doom , only sadness no useful "
Who would not care about self-esteem. Prisoners will face own incompetence everyday. Rosen had seen Japan soldiers kicked USA POW into a toilet pit: "When you have to accept these things, you truly feel the taste of defeat."
Almost every European POWS in later years, watching their comrades had been beaten by Japanese soldiers. even been killed.
They feel ashamed about indifferent, They hate bowed to each Japanese soldier everday, no matter how low rank he is, slightly irreverent will provoke fatal disaster.
Japanese seem special hate for tall, Tall often must knee down to accept cane beaten and other penalties. One day, the pilot Fred Jackson worked on the coral island airport in Emu Bang Province.He saw the six UK officers were lined up , a Japanese officer, regardless any reason.Beat them down to the ground one by one.
Phenomenon of the Japanese abuse POWS can be seen everywhere, In addition, there are so many beheadings and stabbed to death phenomenon.Japanese so cruel treated Allied POWS. Japanese abused Allied prisoners of war are well known. Allied prisoners in war camp in Japan's dead rate was 30%, German and Italian prisoners in camp less than 5% dead rate.For most appear weakness in the battle of the Westerners, Japanese also more contempt for them and brutal torture European POWS.

Bataan Death March

In the course of the death march, the Japanese humiliated European POWS as human can, they weren't considers POWS as human beings, In their view, these U.S. soldiers should battle to dead or suicide. then can get Japanese respect. Become POWS were greatest shame for soldiers.
Because suffering torture, even prisoners arrived at destination, large number USA POWS death or disability. The following story based on survivors, U.S. soldiers Allen tell us, he speak about death march with comrades experience.
Violence Objective: collect money and revenge
The Japanese soldiers escorting prisoners in march, looking for "souvenirs", not just U.S. soldiers' objects, if you see any American POWS who have something, especially money, they robbed. In the bloody battle of Bataan, U.S. soldiers will find Japanese items or coins as a souvenir from dead body. So when the Japanese soldiers found Japanese item from United States POWS, they will pull American POWS out, then never see them - Japanese think these American POWS killed their comrades.

Allen tough walk, even though his body strong, he could not withstand torment. The course of the march, there were wounded U.S. soldiers and Filipino civilians Feishi join the march. They all do their best to adhere, but only few people can keep up with team.Perhaps the sun very hot, Japanese are anxiety. They become more and more fierce, more and more terrible. If people who goes slowly, Japanese think just poke a bayonet assault,the pain was not enough. Now soldiers have a poke to kill POWS. About walk one kilometer again, Allen saw a Filipino soldier twist in the dust, his stomach has been hurted by the Japanese soldiers, like a bloody gourd. Allen vomit out. Slowly, he saw the bodies of POWS everywhere, they bloody, curled up, some open eyes, as if blessing his comrades "Good Luck." Allen getting used to misery. (continue.....)

He imagined the smell of sausage slipped mouth. Suddenly, after a whistle, prisoners were ordered to line up. Japanese soldiers laugh and pick up sausage and rice filled with a large spoon ,show the POWS.
A Japanese Officers went in front of European POWS cursed: "We said something to eat, allow you sleep when you came here. Now the situation is different. We found pistols from three American officers. I punish you, not allowed to eat, must move on. "Allen's fantasy fallen, Japanese add some unproven crime to POWS. "In the initial search, even a toothbrush, shaving cream are let off, let alone a pistol. Even people who really hide the gun, according to Japanese habits,He should been pulled out to shot, killed or beheaded, in order to warning. "Allen thought.
Bataan Death March (part 3)
European POWS dragged his exhausted legs, with disappointment, pain and curse difficulty moving. Fortunately Japanese did not forbid them speak. They more or less encouraged each other. C?te apparently was extremely tired. Alan joked: "Hey, man, in a walk?" Cote said feebly: "I can't walk a kilometer oncemore.Allen said: "hey, I'm like you. But perhaps had something to eat. "They encouraged each other with difficult smile. And walked two or three kilometers, C?te goes slowly. Allen will slow down push him with a shoulder. Some people continue fall. Japanese "clean team" took them to solve.
At 9 o'clock, the Japanese drived prisoners to a courtyard for rest, full of courtyard, Allies POWS could not lie down. POWS have to stand.Ye Taihei, POWS didnt know where it is . Allen found a small bamboo platform, climb up sit down. From here he clearly saw outside Japanese soldiers, took a few large pot with the rice. He could see the fire and Japanese soldiers. He can smell cooking food. "Oh, great! Japanese to give us food." Allen naive think. He watched steam rising from the pot, waiting, the feeling of hunger very strong. But no one gave them meal. Allen sat on the bamboo platform slept.
The next morning, the long march went on. After walk a morning, the sun rise. Japanese command ALLIES POWS to rest. No shelter and no breeze, It was not rest, is a Japanese cruel penalty imposed on them - "exposure to sunburnt." Two hours of "exposure" of POWS, it'S the most brutal mental and physical torture. POWS wounds began worse, suppuration, face and body skin begins burn, people anxious. POWS become more and more insane. Some of them screaming madly, crawled on the ground with chaos, Some people in a coma for a while and die.
Witnessed his comrades were buried when alive
Hot sun, tried and hungry make Allen got splitting headache, dazzled. At this time, several Japanese soldiers came and ordered several USA dragged out bodies buried, some insane people been put into the huts. They began digging. When the shallow hole dug,POWS bury the body. Just then, an American soldier and two Filipinos were carried to leave, they has been unconscious but still alive. A Japanese stopped POWS and ordered them to put the three people into hole, and command POWS started working. A spade after a spade dusts drop on the three POWs. At this time, the American soldiers suddenly woke up, he open blue eyes, hard to climb out the hope. There is any hope he alive.

Fifth day afternoon, USA POWS arrived Shengfuernan. They don't need march finally . They are drive into trucks, 80 to 100 people in each car. Because crowded, many people can not breathe. Prisoners jammed together, people can't had a little fresh air. Allen sat on car door lucky, enjoying the fresh air. The sun more hot, like an oven in truck. Most prisoners infected dysentery.

Nobody give me an answer?

Maybe the European or Caucasians had rule the world for centuries since
Columbus discovered the New World. Perhaps European only trust the " jungle law" ,

That is " only the stronger can survive, the weak were taken.'' When Caucasians meet any race or advance civilization can challenge them, even beat them, they will surrender immediately.
That is why our China KMT party will loss, China commnuist party and Japan can success,because they don't believe the western.

I am sad for this condition. The European birth many Scientists, musicians, philosophers,engineers, mathematicians, writers... That is said,the race very smart and excellent.

And European Scientists discover and invent many thing,like "electricity ,telivision,radio,computer,nuclear power.submarine,satellite,telephone,icebox....." But their thinking and action remain stay at "jungle law". The "jungle law " is a very backward law for animals.
We are the human ,not the animals.We are intelligent beings that can change our life,even change many thing!

If the European continue trust "jungle law", then let it go!

I'll try

Consider that in Hupeh Province in May 1943, "Chinese troops ordered whole towns evacuated on grounds of military necessity - and then plundered them for everything of value. Persons too old to move and who remained in the towns were killed as traitors." Peasants often had no less fear from their own soldiers than they did from the Japanese. Sometimes they simply rebelled or turned on the soldiers to exact revenge.
