Description - The Fallen by Marc Landas
unspeakable crimes. undeniable proof. unattainable justice. "A gripping account of one of the darkest secrets of World War II: the systematic torture and vivisection of American pilots by Japanese scientists for biological warfare research. Almost sixty years after the fact, revisionists continue to deny these horrors, but The Fallen provides indisputable evidence that Japan had indeed subjected American POWs to live medical experiments-such as mutilating their organs, draining their blood, and pumping seawater into their veins. The postwar decision by the U.S. government to protect Japan's Josef Mengele--like criminals is almost as shocking as the atrocities themselves." -Iris Chang, the New York Times bestselling author of The Rape of Nanking and The Chinese in America "A riveting and horrifying tale. Landas's meticulous and imaginative detective work reconstructs a long-buried investigation that implicates not just a few rogue soldiers but Japanese scientists, professors, and politicians, abetted by an American cover-up at the highest levels. An important book that fills a gap in the story of World War II.
The best part of the story is the courage of a lone American flier, loyal to his comrades even in the face of torture, whose ordeal unfolds with vivid immediacy." -Philip Gerard, author of Secret Soldiers
