JAPAN'S  WAR  #9


CONTINUED  FROM  PREVIOUS  POST:


THE  SURVIVORS  OF  THE  FIGHTING  ARE  CROWDED  INTO  CAVES.  THE  AMERICANS  TRY  TO  CONVINCE  THEM  TO  SURRENDER.


18  YEAR  OLD  NURSE:  "ONE  OF  THE  SOLDIERS  BROUGHT  IN  A  LEAFLET  THAT  SAID,  'THE  WAR  IN  SAIPAN  IS  OVER.  THE  SURVIVORS  SHOULD  COME  OUT  WITH  THEIR  ARMS  UP.  YOU  HAVE  DONE  YOUR  DUTY.'  I  THINK  THIS  IS  SUCH  A  BIG  LIE.  WE  WILL  ALL  BE  CRUSHED BY  TANKS  OR  BEATEN  TO  DEATH  BY  MILITARY  DOGS,  IF  WE  ARE  CAUGHT  BY  THE  AMERICANS.  I  THINK  IT'S  BETTER  TO  COMMIT  SUICIDE."


ALTHOUGH  A  FEW  SOLDIERS  CHOOSE  TO  SURRENDER,  MOST  REFUSE.


HIDING  AMONG  THEM  ARE  THOUSANDS  OF  CIVILIANS,  OF  WOMEN  AND  CHILDREN.  YEARS  OF  GOVERNMENT  PROPAGANDA  ABOUT  THE  EVIL  AMERICANS,  LEADS  TO  A  TERRIBLE  TRAGEDY!


SERGEANT  YAMIOCHI: "INSIDE  THE  CAVE  BABIES  WERE  CRYING  LOUDLY.  AN  OFFICER  ORDERED  'STOR  THAT  CRYING.'  BUT  IT  DIDN'T WORK.  THE  OFFICER  SHOUTED  'KILL  THE  BABIES  IMMEDIATELY!'  ONE  OF  THE  MOTHERS  THEN  STRANGLED  HER  OWN  BABY.  THERE  WERE  NO  MORE  CRYING  BABIES  IN  THE  CAVE,  ONLY  SOBBING  MOTHERS."


A  14  YEAR  OLD  GIRL  WITNESSES  THE  MASS  SUICIDES.  "MY  MOTHER  WAS  TELLING  US  THAT  WE  WERE  GOING  SOMEWHERE  VERY  NICE,  AND  WE  WOULD  ALL  BE  GOING  TOGETHER.  THEN  OUR  SERGEANT  THROWS  A  HAND-GRENADE.  NOW  I  AM  REALLY  GOING  TO  DIE,  BUT  I  SURVIVED,  ALONE,  ONLY  MYSELF,  I  LOST  ALL  MY  FAMILY."


MORE  THAN  13,000  CIVILIANS  DIE  IN  THE  FIGHTING.


WITH  THE  FALL  OF  THE  MARIANA  ISLANDS,  NOWHERE  IN  JAPAN  IS  BEYOND  THE  REACH  OF  AMERICAN  AIR  POWER.


NO  ONE  IS  SAFE  FROM  THE  WAR.

TO  BE  CONTINUED


WHAT  A  TERRIBLE  HORRIFIC  STORY.  WHAT  A  DEMONIC  BRAIN  WASHING  WAS  DONE  BY  THE  JAPANESE  ON  ALL  THOSE  CIVILIANS.  IT  WAS  TRULY  DEMONIC,  THE  KIND  OF  THING  THE  DEMONS  WOULD  RELISH  IN  DOING,  BEING  LED  ON  BY  THEIR  LEADER  SATAN  THE  DEVIL.
