Unit 731 : testimony by Hal Gold( Book )

27 editions published between 1996 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Some of the cruelest deeds of Japan's war in Asia did not occur on the battlefield, but in quiet, antiseptic medical wards in obscure parts of the continent. Far from front lines and prying eyes, Japanese doctors and their assistants subjected human guinea pigs to gruesome medical experiments. In the first part of Unit 731: Testimony, author Hal Gold draws upon a painstakingly accumulated reservoir of sources to construct a portrait of the Imperial Japanese Army's most notorious medical unit, giving an overview of its history and detailing its most shocking activities. The second half of the book consists almost entirely of the words of former unit members themselves, taken from remarks they made at a traveling Unit 731 exhibition held around Japan in 1994-95. These people recount their vivid firsthand memories of what it was like to cut open pregnant women as they lay awake on the vivisection table, inject plague germs into healthy farmers, and carry buckets of fresh blood and organs through corridors to their appropriate destinations. Unit 731: Testimony represents an essential addition to the growing body of literature on the still-unfolding story of one of the most infamous military outfits in modern history. By showing how the ethics of "normal" men and women, and even an entire profession, can be warped by the fire of war, this important book offers a window on a time of human madness, in the hope that such days will never come again
The politics of Nanjing : an impartial investigation by Minoru Kitamura( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The events of December, 1937 in Nanjing are long-standing causes of contention rooted in political differences of opinion between China and Japan. The Chinese view is unified, expressed in the 300,000 victims engraved on the memorial walls in Nanjing, which bluntly refers to the Chinese opinion and entity of the Great Massacre School. Views in Japan range from complete denial to agreement with the Chinese. The Japanese government's position of denial fuels the diplomatic clash. The Politics of Nanjing takes a centrist position in order to reconstruct historiographically the days leading up to and following the Japanese invasion of the capital and the political aftermath in China-Japan relations

From Shanghai to Shanghai : the war diary of an imperial Japanese army medical officer, 1937-1941 by Tetsuo Asō( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dr. Asō was the first Japanese medical officer officially ordered to perform health examinations on "military comfort women." This policy was instituted in 1937 for a new contingent of prostitutes sent to Shanghai to serve the Japanese military, a measure undertaken by the Japanese High Command to reduce venereal disease among the troops. Dr. Asō performed this duty throughout the term of his assignment in China. The 27 year-old gynecologist traveled throughout China during his various tours of duty in the Sino-Japanese war. The journey begins in late 1937, when he first arrived in Shanghai, and continues for four years, until 1941, when he returned to Japan from Shanghai after tours of duty in Shanghai, in Nanjing, and in a number of other parts of central China
