History. Military. Nonfiction. HTML:The New York Times bestselling account of one of history's most brutal ?? and forgotten ?? massacres, when the Japanese army destroyed China's capital city on the eve of World War II
In December 1937, one of the most horrific atrocities in the long annals of wartime barbarity occurred. The Japanese army swept into the ancient city of Nanking (what was then the capital of China), and within weeks, more than 300,000 Chinese civilians and soldiers were systematically raped, tortured, and murdered. In this seminal work, Iris Chang, whose own grandparents barely escaped the massacre, tells this history from three perspectives: that of the Japanese soldiers, that of the Chinese, and that of a group of Westerners who refused to abandon the city and created a safety zone, which saved almost 300,000 Chinese.
Drawing on extensive interviews with survivors and documents brought to light for the first time, Iris Chang's classic book is the definitive history of this horrifying episode.
"Chang vividly, methodically, records what happened, piecing together the abundant eyewitness reports into an undeniable tapestry of horror." - Adam Hochschild, Salon… (mer)

Incredible book but even better story about the author and the book itself. It's hard to believe when people think of war crimes in ww2 everyone assumes it's Germany and the concentration camps you're talking about but the Japanese War Crimes were just as, if not more, sadistic than the Nazis. It's hard to imagine this being such recent history. The author of this book actually becomes a part of the story because she committed suicide about 7 years after finishing this book. She was working on another book about another Japanese war crime, the Battan Death March. She started deteriorating fairly quickly and killed herself. Her husband writes an epilogue to finish the book and it's really interesting and so tragic. I also didn't know the lengths Japan was currently going to try and whitewash this part of history and just like they are Holocaust deniers, they are also many people who say the Rape of Nanking didn't happen, or didn't happen to the extent that it did. I hope this book serves the purpose of opening peoples eyes to the brutal truth that the Japanese military did to Chinese soldiers and civilians. 5 stars for sure. The author has an autobiography written about her and I'm interested in reading that too. ( )

I had no idea. This is not a book for the faint-hearted, as it is quite graphic, but not gratuitously so. Iris Chang describes the atrocities of the Rape with the kind of language to provoke heartbreak, revulsion, rage, shock...

I did know beforehand about an event in history called the Rape of Nanking, and I had heard about the Comfort Women of WWII, however, as many can relate, I was given a sanitized version of the history. In many ways I feel like I've been robbed, or made to swallow what "history" my government has deemed proper to teach to its people. Hopefully someday, nations/religions can stop trying to hide their shame, learn to embrace it and prevent it from happening again.

I very much enjoyed Anna Fields narration of the book, and I may purchase a physical copy to see if there is a reference section with which I can learn more. ( )

A richly told, thoroughly documented, and horribly gruesome account of the Japanese occupation of mainland China. Highly recommended, but be forewarned of the starkness of war and brutality. ( )

While I was somewhat familiar with the atrocities thst occurred in Nanking I soon realized I was woefully under educated about the magnitude of what happened. Even more shocking, to learn about the Japanese successful efforts at suppressing the details and omitting it from history books is completely unacceptable. My Dad fought in the Pacific theatre in WWII and never spoke a word about what he experienced but he refused to buy anything made in Japan. A must read for all to ensure history does not repeat itself ( )
