  • The Knights of Bushido: A History of Japanese War Crimes During World War II

    Story
    (19)

    The war crimes trials at Nuremberg and Tokyo meted out the Allies' official justice; Lord Russell of Liverpool's sensational bestselling books on the Axis' war crimes decided the public's opinion. The Knights of Bushido, Russell's shocking account of Japanese brutality in the Pacific in World War II, describes how the noble founding principles of the Empire of Japan were perverted by the military into a systematic campaign of torture, murder, starvation, rape, and destruction. Notorious incidents like the Nanking Massacre and the Bataan Death March emerge as merely part of a pattern of human rights abuses. Undoubtedly formidable soldiers, the Japanese were terrible conquerors. Their conduct in the Pacific is a harrowing example of the doctrine of mutual destruction carried to the extreme, and begs the question of what is acceptable—and unacceptable—in total war.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Knights of Bushido to be better than the print version?

    I enjoy audible with a good pair of headphones much more reading a book. Yes it was better for sure.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Really not applicable as there were many. I would have to give the narrator the credit for best performance.


    Have you listened to any of Simon Vance’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I have not. I will purchase future books if they are of interest if Mr. Vance is the narrator!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No as I stated at times because of the truth of what really happened in the camps in Japan it was mind boggling how many men were killed and the way they were killed. Truly disgusting is all I can say. I feel more of the persons responsible should have been tried and hung!


    Any additional comments?

    I would just worn folks this is a very technical account of what really went on in these camps and at times you will get very angry and if you have a lite stomach ill at what you are reading if you think about what transpired. We owe a tremendous amount to the men that sacrificed their lives for out freedom!

  • Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption

    • UNABRIDGED (14 hrs)
    • By Laura Hillenbrand

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Annie M. says: "Hillenbrand could make even laundry fascinating!"
    "One of the Beat Books I Have Ever Read!"

    Story
    Would you listen to Unbroken again? Why?

    It is a riveting account of what it was like to be a prisoner of war in WWII under the Japanese. I could not stop listening to it. Mr. Hermann did a super job of reading it with excellent deviations of his voice to highlight a point or points.


    What did you like best about this story?

    All of it it is that simple!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The time in the camp approaching the end of the war when the punishment never let up. I always thought the Nazi's were bad. The Japanese made them look like Boy Scouts. The statistics of number that died compared to others we fought will blow your mind. I do not want to spoil the contents.


    Any additional comments?

    By far the best book I have read in years and I will be 68 in Sept.! ENJOY!
