Abstract:

"This book reveals the extent of the truly shocking activities of the Kempetai, Japan's feared military and secret police." "The book opens by explaining the origins, organisation and roles of the Kempetai apparatus, which exercised virtually unlimited power throughout the Japanese Empire. The author reveals their criminal and collaborationist networks, which extorted huge sums of money from hapless citizens and businesses. They ran the Allied POW gulag system which treated captives with merciless and murderous brutality. Other Kempeitai activities included biological and chemical experiments on live subjects, the Maruta vivisection campaign and widespread slave labor, including the so-called "Comfort Women," drawn from all races."--Jacket.
