Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Kempeitai, Japan's secret military police and counter-espionage service, were one of the most dreaded organizations of the Second World War. Through sheer horror tactics they degraded their victims to demonstrate their superiority over reluctant nations and break the human spirit. First-hand accounts in this book bring the atrocities to life.

Book News Annotation:

A study of Japan's WWII-era secret police by a man whose father was one of their prisoners in Shanghai in the early 1940s. The author examines the Kempeitai's origins, training, recruitment practices, structure, duties, military philosophy, and exploits. Firsthand accounts from members of the Kempeitai and its victims are utilized in the book. The book concludes with a look at the fate of the Kempeitai after the Japanese surrender and how its members were assimilated into post-war Japanese economic and political life. Distributed by Books International.
