More than 140,000 Caucasian PoWs fell to the Japanese Imperial Army and Navy in the Second World War. Many of these men were shipped to the Japanese main islands for slave labour, in seaborne transports crammed with PoWs in their airless holds, and stricken with disease. Countless hundreds of Allied troops and civilians died at sea. Sick, starved, suffocated, tortured and massacred when they became a nuisance, or killed when the unmarked transports were bombed by the Allies, the prisoners experienced unbelievable horrors. Raymond Lamont-Brown's chilling account also covers the barbaric actions of the Imperial Japanese Navy in the wake of its attacks on Allied merchant shipping, from the ramming of lifeboats, attacks on hospital ships, the machine-gunning of survivors in the water, to the beheading of naval captives. Whereas many other accounts of Japanese atrocities have concentrated on the fate of PoWs on land, the author has researched original Japanese records and drawn on eyewitness accounts to write this frightening account of Japanese barbarity against defenceless prisoners of war at sea.

Well written, doesn't leave much to the imagination. I would recommend this book for anyone interested in Japanese atrocities during WW 2.

This is a real history lesson. How could people treat other humans like this? Understand that and you are just touching on what nasty things mankind is capable of. Don't be afraid-------read it!

This is a well researched and written book about the hell ships of WWII.

Lots of small details about the Japanese and their terrible treament of our GI's during the war.

It explains how the Japs arrived at their decision concerning the hellships.

They should have students in both high school and college read this book....true stories about WWII.

The harrowing narratives from the surviving POWs told of the extreme cruelty of their Japanese captors. Good narratives from the surviving Australian, British and Dutch POWS. Even tho' there were more American POWs, their stories were not told.

This book describes the inhumane and sometimes macabre treatment of Allied prisoners of war by their Japanese captors. The first part of the book describes the feared "Hell Ships". These were massively overcrowded freighters that the Japanese used to transport POWs. Most of the time, the POWs were packed in so tightly that they were unable to lay down. Very little food or water was given to them, and their latrine amounted to a trough hanging over the side of the ship. Aside from facing the constant beatings from the Japanese, these men also lived in fear of Allied submarine attack. Indeed, many of the POWs died as a result of an Allied torpedo striking their Hell Ship. The Japanese did very little to assist the prisoners in case the ship needed to be abandoned. Most of the time, they were locked in their holds to drown as the ship sank.
Japanese submarines and commerce raiders also played a role in the high seas atrocities. Many Japanese submarine captains would surface their sub after sinking an enemy vessel and machine gun the survivors in the water.
The chapters dealing with biological warfare and "comfort women" are particularly disturbing. The Japanese would use Allied POWs as human "guinea pigs" for "medical" experiments. As noted in the book, the Japanese would allow the POWs very little clothing and as they proceeded into colder cilmates, they would see how the POWs bodies would react. Many of them died from exposure to the cold. Others were thrown into the sea for "survival tests", while others were subjected to various vaccine tests.
The "comfort women" were mostly young Korean women, about 12 to 20 years old, who were subjected to forced prostitution. These women were lured in by false promises from the Japanese commander, placed aboard a ship, and sent to the front lines for the Japanese sailors and soldiers. Many went mad, most contacted various diseases, and many died.
The fact that amazes me is how to this day the Japanese can still deny so much of these atrocities. Much of the history from this time period is not mentioned at all by the Japanese. Hopefully one day they will realize their earlier wrongdoings and apologize for them.
I felt this was a good, albeit short, analysis of some of the atrocities committed by the Japanese. I found the reading hard at some points due to all of the Japanese terms that the author chose to use, but overall, the book gives a good introduction to some of the crimes committed by the Japanese.
