My latest at the Diplomat mentions Barak Kushner’s Men to Devils, Devils to Men, a recent book on the war crimes trials that followed the Pacific War:

Broadly speaking, both Chinese factions sought to demonstrate their commitment to the new international order by appearing magnanimous towards the defeated Japanese. For their part, the Japanese government voluntarily complied with most of the international demands, but the government never engaged in a thorough effort to explain the proceedings to the Japanese public, with the result that many Japanese never grappled with the reality of the war crimes.
