Yeah but I can't find the thread as they don't subdivide the thread

I know it's not exactly. But I think this thread fits better.

Heard from my grandfather (whose father served in the war) in Burma campaign indian soldiers carried poison with em as it was better to die then be captured by the Japanese

Because Japanese were known to be especially cruel to indian forces who they thought of as Inferior race and because of that they tortured em way more severely then a white soldier
Had heard about similar cruelties done by the Japanese against Indian POWs captured in Malaya, so for Indian troops on the front lines in Burma it was no quarter given, none taken.

Least we forget. She could easily have been my aunty or anyone's aunty. Brave hero's of our continue struggle for freedom and liberty.

We mustn't forget their sacrifices, and the facts that the Japanese still haven't atone for their atrocities.

Chinese guerrilla fighter Cheng Benhua smiling moment before execution by the Japanese. (Late 1938)

She led a local resistance movement during the Nanjing Massacre, was then imprisoned and gang raped before being executed by bayonet. This photo is the primary reason she is remembered.

It's funny it's always Germany but Japanese were no less cruel

They didn't even properly apologize I believe

Oh you young people. I guess it's incumbent on us "oldies" to educate you young people, so you can pass the stories on to the next generation. I've heard many stories from my elders (many fought for CCP as gorillas) on how Japanese treats their captives.

Basically, whatever you heard about Japanese troops is true. It's in their upbringing. They believed in the "code". And that is a man should fight till it's last breath. So any man surrendering is less than a man because they didn't fought till their last breath! As such any POW don't deserves to be treated as human. They deserve to be treated as sub-human.
