Mr. Hicks does a good job laying out the facts without resulting to sensationalism. His style is relatively dry, which actually helps to bring home the horrors endured by these poor women and the atrocities committed against them. To call these victims 'comfort women' as per the original Japanese word downplays the terrible human rights violation perpetrated against them. I consider this an early 20th-century human trafficking case, made all the more horrific because a government led the wide-spread effort to deceive and destroy many young girls' lives. And as long as the Japanese government stubbornly cling to a policy of denial, they'll never be able to rid themselves of their shameful past and move on.
