Hidden Atrocities: Japanese Germ Warfare and American Obstruction of Justice at the Tokyo Trial by Jeanne Guillemin is a book I requested from NetGalley and the review is voluntary. This book is very disturbing. It is amazing the horrible things that happened and the justice was covered up by the American government. Japan was horrible and most new about Rape of Nanking but there was so much more. There were terrible variety of biological warfare, chemical warfare, torture, medical experiments, and nuclear test subjects, and so much more. It was all known by America but it was eventually ignored. What a shame. There were as many killed in Asia as there was in Europe and in the Holocaust. It was a hard book to read but it was a book that is important to read.
