Unit 731 review

Well I had planned to write a review for every book I've finished of late but sometimes I just don't seem to have time.

Anyways, this one was unfortunately a dissapointment. It had potential in possibly shining light on a much neglected subject (that being Japanese attrocities commited before and after WWII) but it feel quite short.

The truth is, I totally believe that the Japanese (and the Americans, Germans, Russians, Bristish, ect..) commited all sorts of nastyness during the war. It was a time in which "the bombing of civilians was considered good strategy".

This book though only delivers hal-hazard testimony "hinting" at a possible Unit of scientific experimentation. I'm guessing it is true but I would have felt a lot more comfortable with a more detailed and comprehensive accounting.
