9789810039219: The Killer They Called a God

In the chaotic following Japan's unconditional surrender on August 15, 1945, the Pacific conflict's most insidious war criminal – Colonel Masanobu Tsuji – made his getaway, disguised as a Buddhist monk, from the Japanese military headquarters in Bangkok, Thailand.

Tsuji was responsible for the Bataan Death March – World War 11's worst atrocity against US servicmen. He was also responsible for the appalling Singapore Chinese Massacres.

Incredibly, the American and British authorities purposely let him escape arrest and retribution. With this assistance and protection, Tsuji went on to become Japan's most popularly elected post-war politician. This is the first and only book on the Tsuji saga. The author traces the amazing story from the blood-soaked beaches of Singapore, across the hills of Bataan, to its baffling cloak and dagger conclusion.
