Overview

SADISTS OF THE RISING SUN focuses on the unique cruelty and capacity for slaughter displayed by Japan, from the beginning of the 1930s, with the origins of its atrocity-focused incursions into East Asia, until the devastation of its cities and incineration of its population by firestorms in 1945. During that period, Japan determinedly undertook the twentieth-century's supreme mission of Imperially-sanctioned butchery, combining the bacteriological obliteration of entire cities with the cannibalism, sexual torture and crucifixion of prisoners of war, the mass-bayoneting and violation of East-Asian urban populations, and the arbitrary overhaul and eradication of human life, in an ambitious project of annihilation conceived by its emperor, Hirohito, and put into operation by dedicated atrocity-advocates such as Shiro Ishii, the director of the Unit 731 experimentation-centre in colonized Manchuria, where the legendary 'body without organs' evisceration initiative was undertaken, alongside other unprecedented explorations into the extreme zones of the human body and its sensations. This illustrated document, based on extensive investigation and incorporating rare and disturbing photographic images, extensively analyses Unit 731 and its legacy, along with other projects of extermination, erasure and sexual mass-subjugation which haunt and define Japan and its cities to the present day.

The book is short for the amount of money paid. (64 pages) In addition to being short, the author tried to use big fancy words and drama to describe something. If your vocabulary is somewhat limited, you will spend a lot of time trying to figure out what the author was describing. There is nothing to back up facts and even though there were some atrocities in POW camps, some of it was way out in left field. Do not buy this book unless you want to read a book in about an hour.

The atrocity is this book. It is a joke and the author is laughing all the way to the bank. There is no doubt that the Japanese were guilty of heinous crimes as discussed in the Rape of Nanking, but this book contains not a single footnote or source to back up its disgusting story. This is made up and not well written at that. STAY AWAY. I feel like a fool for having paid for it. The only reason there is one star with this review is that I could not figure how to give it zero. It should be a minus a million stars.
