9780285637641: A Plague Upon Humanity

From 1932 to 1945, in a race to develop germ warfare capability for the Imperial Japanese military thousands of Japanese doctors, nurses and scientists willingly took part in what was known at the time as the secret of secrets : horrifying experiments on innocent Chinese men, women and children, as well as experiments on American prisoners of war. An elite group known as Unit 731, led by Dr Shiro Ishii (Japan s answer to Joseph Mengele), infected thousands of prisoners with virulent strains of typhoid, plague, cholera and other epidemic diseases. Germ warfare campaigns were launched against China, cities and towns were hit with biological bombs. Yet after the war, General Douglas MacArthur struck a deal with these doctors, shielding them from accountability for their crimes. Provocative, compelling and alarming A Plague Upon Humanity exposes one of the most shameful chapters in human history.

Review:

This valuable and interesting insight into a hitherto little known area concludes with a description of the alleged collusion between the Japanese and the Americans that resulted in a cover-up of these war crimes and the evasion of prosecution by the main perpetrators. --'Military Illustrated'

Anyone familiar with recent events will understand the pragmatic point of view that bio-weapons are only bad when the other guy has them. Barenblatt s book makes that point even more forcefully... Shocking, gripping stuff hard to read, and even harder to put down. --'Focus'

Apart from the horrors of the experiments, what shocks people today is that many of the perpetrators were never brought to a war crimes trial... The US authorities considered Ishii s research programme to be too valuable to be revealed in public... A volume that helps to keep the truth alive. --'Contemporary Review'
