An eye-opening account of horrifying war crimes that went unpunished In occupied Japan, a routine investigation by American authorities led to the shocking discovery that 39 American POWs had been beheaded. Eight others, survivors of an American bomber shot down in 1945, had suffered an even worse fate at the hands of Japanese scientists. As guinea pigs in Japan's biological warfare program, they had been infected with biological agents and undergone vivisection. These atrocities were compounded when U.S. authorities essentially released the convicted perpetrators for political gain. The Fallen tells this appalling and all-but-forgotten tale of science, justice, and military power at their worst in excruciating yet riveting detail.
