Author(s): Dr. Peter Williams
Inspired by an ITV documentary, this book attempts to clear up one of the last secrets of the Second World War - how a Japanese bacteriologist researched biological weapons that would win the war for Japan. The details of the experiments which took place in the unit are horrifying. Japanese soldier-scientists carried out freezing, ballistics and live vivisection experiments on Russian, Chinese, American and British prisoners. The book raises some other questions regarding experimentation in China, Singapore and Burma and whether Britain knew of the full extent of Japanese biological warfare activities.
