8. Kill All - "Unbroken" an unreal story of Louie Zamperini

Laura Hillenbrand describes alleged "Kill All Policy" of the Japanese Military that happened somewhere around Asia.

But, we shall remember that this book "Unbroken" is about the experience of the one and only Luoie Zamperini. So, what did he experience?

Here is a scene from "Unbroken" around August 17, 1945 when the war was already ended.

Quote;  On August 8, the guards had begun nailing the barracks doors shut. Then, on August 15, the guards had suddenly become much more brutal, and the POWs’ workload, breaking rocks on a hillside, had been intensified. 
After the commander left, something troubling happened. The guards began bringing the POWs out of the barracks and dividing them into small groups. Once they had the men assembled, they herded them out of camp and deep into the mountain forest, heading nowhere. After pushing the men onward through the trees for some time, the guards led the men back to camp and into the barracks. Later, the walks were repeated. No explanation was given. The guards seemed to be inuring the men to this strange routine in preparation for something terrible. Unquote

That's it? How "troubling" was it? What was "something terrible"? What happened exactly? What happened to all those POWs who were freed at the end of the war?

Freed POWs

Let us shift our eyes from "Kill All" to "Save All" which actually happened.

This is a story of a British war veteran, Sir Samuel Falle, one of 422 officers and sailors of the British Navy rescued by a Japanese. 

From the website:
Quote; On March 1, 1942, the British Royal Navy destroyer Encounter and its heavy cruiser Exeter were sunk by the Imperial Japanese Navy off the coast of Surabaya, a port in what is now Indonesia, in the northeastern Java Sea. About 450 British officers and sailors were left drifting in the water under the scorching sun.
The next day, when the men had been pushed to their limits due to fatigue, thirst and fear of shark attacks, the Japanese destroyer Ikazuchi found them by chance while patrolling that sector of the ocean. Commander Shunsaku Kudo made the decision to rescue all the officers and sailors, despite being in danger of submarine attacks, thus saving the lives of 422 British sailors.
The deck of the Ikazuchi, which had 220 crew members, was filled with the rescued British officers and sailors, who were covered in heavy oil from the water, but the crew members treated them as friendly forces by washing them and giving them clothing and food.
“I remember to this day that they gave me a green shirt, khaki trousers and a pair of tennis shoes. Then, we were given hot milk, corn willies and biscuits,” said Falle.  Unquote

Sam Falle wrote wrote a book "My lucky life : in war, revolution, peace, and diplomacy".

We conducted "Save All Policy" in the face of the "Kill All" policy by the Allied Forces as described on this video ("extermination of the Japanese" at 3:00).

Here is a tip for those who testify; 
  1. Refresh Your Memory
  2. Tell the Truth
  3. Do Not Exaggerate

Otherwise, you will lose credibility and everything you say will ring untrue..

So, dear readers, you are the judge;

Is the whole story of "Unbroken" true?

To be continued.
