Product Overview

While many histories of World War Two have recounted the grim atrocities performed by Japanese soldiers on civilians and POWs, few have attempted to explain how and why such barbarity could have occurred. What led to the assault on Nanking? How could one in four Allied POWs die in captivity? Meticulously researched, using Japanese and British consultants, Horror in the East examines the political and economic factors, as well as the mindset of those involved. Rarely seen archive footage and interviews with former Japanese soldiers, kamakazis, Allied POWs, and victims of the notorious cruelty reveal the complex truth behind the horror.

Editors Note
Note Events in Japan played a huge part in forming the overall story of World War II, with HORROR IN THE EAST attempting to document them in this fascinating program on the atrocities that unfolded. What sets this apart from the usual World War II coverage is that it tries to examine the motivations behind the gruesome scenes that took place, with Japanese and British correspondents spoken to at length about the events. Some vintage footage has been exhumed from the vaults to help offer a visual representation of Japan at this time, while interviews are conducted with a number of key witnesses who played a vital part in the war.
