Ironically while the Japanese Navy followed many of the Royal Navy's traditions and structures, it had a totally different approach to the treatment of its foes. The author has uncovered a plethora of outrages against both servicemen and civilians which make chilling and shocking reading. These range from the execution of POWs, the abandonment of survivors to the elements and certain starvation to the infamous Hell Ships. The author who lives in the Far East examines the different culture that led to these frequent and appalling atrocities. This is a serious and fascinating study of a dark chapter in Naval warfare history.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A chilling and often angering look at the Japanese naval atrocities Mark Felton has done the world a great service by writing this book. He unearths Japanese naval atrocities that most including me did not know about until the publication, particularly the murder of the Midway pilots, medical experimentation of the IJN the Rape of Manilla, the premeditated murder of POWs after interrogation and so many more that it would be impossible to list them all. He goes into great vivid detail and not a word in this book is superfluous. The atrocities move the reader to tears and to anger, and rightly shock the conscience. This is a vital book, I could not recommend more highly.
