By Fiske Hanley. The shocking story of captured B-29 Superfortress airmen who were shot down over Japan during World War II has never been told. Brutal Japanese Kempei Tai Secret Police were their captors. Kept in overcrowded, filthy dungeon cells in Tokyo, across the moat from the Emperor’s Palace, they were beaten, tortured, starved, and continually threatened with death. They were not treated as Prisoners of War but were designated as Special Prisoners to be tried and executed for the killing of innocent women and children. While awaiting trial they were considered subhuman—starved on half POW rations, issued no clothes or basic hygienic needs, allowed to suffer and die from torture, beatings, wounds, and lack of medical treatment.
Accused American War Criminal is written by one of the few surviving Special Prisoners. A summary of related testimony given at War Crime Trials held in Tokyo and Yokohama after World War II is also included.
