The Philippines in World War II, 1941-1945: A Chronology and Select Annotated Bibliography of Books and Articles in English

Chapter 6
War Crimes

The issue of Japanese war crimes in the Philippines remains touchy, politically charged, and controversial. Filipinos who remember the occupation and surviving American ex prisoners of war remain bitter over their treatment by the Japanese. On the other hand, there are many in both the Philippines and the United States who believe that the executions of Generals Homma (for the atrocities committed on the Bataan Death March) and Yamashita (for the brutal conduct of Japanese troops during the 1944-1945 fighting, particularly in Manila) were gross miscarriages of justice. Many Filipinos are bitter because the Japanese were never called to account for the impressment of Philippine women as 'comfort women' or for the massacres committed during anti-guerilla operations. See also Japanese Occupation Policies; and The Bataan Death March, Prisoners of War, and Civilian Internees.

Brackman vigorously defends the prosecution of the top surviving Japanese wartime leaders. He criticizes the decision not to try Emperor Hirohito but argues that, for the most part, justice was served. There is a chapter on Japanese atrocities in the Philippines based on primary sources, trial transcripts and interviews with former prosecutors.
