Critics reviews

Absolutely shattering in its presentation of the horrors facing the Japanese army in the final days of the war (cannibalism, the murder of superior officers, vermin eating, death by disease and starvation), it’s not just a powerful indictment of war in general but also of the Japanese establishment that to this day refuses to acknowledge the truth to the families of the deceased.
