Edw. Langley Russell, 2nd Baron Russell of Liverpool CBE, MC, was a British soldier, lawyer, Liberal MP, editor of the Liverpool Daily Post, historian and writer.

This is his pathfinding and explicit summary of many Japanese atrocities during World War II. Includes torture and murders of POWs; multiple sadistic acts, other horrors, and even vivisections. Doesn't adequately discuss the horrific use of live human "logs" who were experimentally injected with diseases, or the exploitation of "comfort women."

Remarkably clean, tight copy with shocking photos. Slight soil to an otherwise sharp jacket.

Price: $35.00
