 About the Book 

Including original contributions from distinguished European and American historians such as Saul Friedländer, Omer Bartov, John Dower, Christopher Browning, and Marilyn Young, Crimes of War surveys wartime atrocities committed by the United States,MoreIncluding original contributions from distinguished European and American historians such as Saul Friedländer, Omer Bartov, John Dower, Christopher Browning, and Marilyn Young, Crimes of War surveys wartime atrocities committed by the United States, Germany, and Japan across the twentieth century. The book presents startling new evidence of the killing of unarmed Koreans by American troops at No Gun Ri, of atrocities committed by Nazi soldiers on the Russian front, and of Japanese barbarity in China during World War II. Emerging from these accounts is a distinctive, repeated pattern, which typically includes a half-century of denial before the truth is confronted.
