Default Re: D Day 1944 - 2014

Apparently the Geneva convention has some rules about treating war criminals while in custody awaiting trials... Sound familiar?

My father in law said he got to know Tojo, after a fashion, having some conversations with him though AFAIK no one in the family knows the content of those conversations.

"Pyle was killed by a Japanese machine gunner on April 18, 1945, on the tiny Pacific island of Ie Shima. In announcing his death, President Harry Truman said, "No man in this war has so well told the story of the American fighting man as the American fighting man wanted it told.""
