    during the Jap Rape of Nanking in 1936.

    Between 2 Jap officers on a bet.

    These were people who had hopes and dreams.

    Think About It.

    During the infamous Bataan death march it seems that red headed US soldiers were especially targeted for random beheading by the Japanese although any American could be a victim. It was reported that American Marines who were left on Makin Is. after the useless Carlson's Raid were ceremoniously beheaded.

    The Japanese might have seen more than a few redheads in Feb. 1942 after the worst capitulation in British history where 50,000 British troops surrendered at Singapore. There is little doubt that the Japanese assumed that the anglo race were cowards after the US capitulation in Bataan and Corrigador barely a month later. Redheads probably symbolized weakness and they stuck out until American soldiers got smart and smeared their heads with mud and grease.

    When a soldier surrendered he was no longer a soldier. Japan had a different culture. One of the things warring nations often come up against is the culture differences when they do battle. We are running into some this with the Muslim beliefs. The British ran into it when they fought the American revolutionists, I mean soldiers hiding behind trees and fences, really.

    Under Hitler's reign in Nazi Germany, execution by Guillotine was revived. In 1942 an American woman named Mildred Fish-Harnack from Wisconsin, a member of the American Woman's club in Berlin, was arrested by the Gestapo and beheaded by guillotine.
