For nearly half a century, the truth about the Japanese Army's Unit 731 has been shrouded in mystery. It was set up in 1935 by brilliant bacteriologist Shiro Ishii in a remote village in Japanese-occupied Manchuria. There, for the next decade, Japanese soldier-scientists carried out freezing, ballistics and vivisection experiments on "enemies"--Russian, Chinese, American, British and Australian prisoners of war. But, unlike his Nazi counterpart, Josef Mengele, Ishii was never prosecuted by the victorious Allied forces for his crimes of experimentation on human beings. And, although Emperor Hirohito's seal appeared on the document establishing Unit 731, no accusation was made against him nor against Ishii and his colleagues in the course of the Tokyo War Crimes Tribunal. [The] authors [of this book] tell the story of how and why all this happened. Gathering ... new evidence from British, American, Soviet, and Japanese documentary sources and participants, they trace the origins, activities, and impact of Unit 731 and its deadly weaponry, as well as American willingness to grant immunity to those involved in exchange for research data derived from the horrifying experiments. Implicating General Douglas MacArthur in the decision to conceal Unit 731's crimes and to protect Japanese scientists from prosecution, the authors make clear that information about the extraordinary warfare conducted by the Unit was known to Britain, Canada, China, France, the Netherlands, and the Soviet Union as well. Yet, no charges concerning Japanese bacteriological and chemical warfare were ever brought before the War Crimes Tribunal.-Dust jacket
