The Rape of Nanking (Nanjing) / Massacre

You know, there wouldn't be so much controversy if the Japanese government at the end of the war hadn't done such a good job of destroying all their records. But, because they did do such a tremendous job of it, we are forced to find other sources to find out what actually happened in places like Nanjing.

Having read several books and articles on the subject, I was actually amazed to find a website that I think covers the issue better than any other. It does a wonderful job of trying to dig out the facts from the hysteria and denial. It is well researched, a true gem.

So, if you are interested in learning the true story of what happened at Nanjing, read The Nanking Atrocities.

(The next A-bomb chapter should be up sometime tonight)
