  1. Thanks for sharing! No matter how dark, how tragic history can be, if we do not realize something like the evil that had occurred in Nanking or any other place, we risk horrifically repeating it again. Semper Fi

  2. This was a great podcast. Even with the warning at the beginning, I found myself saying “WTF?!”

    My girlfriend’s grandmother was a child in the Philippines when the Japanese invaded and she told similar stories about the atrocities that occurred.
    My Grandmother was a teenager in Oahu when the Japanese attacked and she would tell me about the planes flying over her house and how she could hear the explosions.
    Thank you for sharing this book as not many people outside of the Asian culture know about this event.

  3. Jocko,
    I wanted to commend you for covering the book “The Rape of Nanking.” I read it many years ago and while it is a book I would insist everyone read, few ever will. I spent 8 years in Japan, mostly as a child. I can attest to the white washing of history there. For me, this book was a hard read. Not because its so incredibly disturbing. Not because I am a woman. Not because I disputed it. But because it is a representation of a Japan I do not know. Japan is a second home to me and I have rarely come across a people so welcoming.

    Women often bear the greatest burden and endure the harshest treatment during war. This is kind of treatment of women occurs throughout much of the world today. The cutting off of body parts, child marriage, and gang rapes are regular headlines in many countries. As you well know. I wish the women in the west would understand what true victims are and start marching for them. And stop this nonsense self-serving self-appointed victimization. They need some serious perspective and to start taking responsibility for their life and where they are in it. These women marching as “victims” do not speak for me. As a woman in the west, I am blessed beyond belief. Because of people like you who have served this country and protected my rights, I will never be a victim. No matter who is elected.

    1. A bit spooky to tell soldiers that their wives take the burden of war.
      Each to their own I suppose. I’d rather the suburb than the battlefields, personally.
