Between 1935 and 1945, Japanese doctors and research scientists experimented on innocent Chinese men, women and children (and even American prisoners of war) in an attempt to develop germ warfare capability for the imperial Japanese military. The work of the infamous unit 731 was led by Dr Shiro Ishii, Japan's answer to Joseph Mengele. Thousands were infected with epidemic diseases and 500,000 people died from infection caused by germ weapons. Yet after the war General MacArthur struck a deal that shielded the doctors and scientists of Unit 731 from accountability. Provocative, compelling and drawing on original research Daniel Barenblatt exposes one of the most shameful chapters of recent history.
