In December 1937, the invading Japanese troops seized Nanjing without meeting substantial resistance. The city was sacked, the soldiers committing arson, murder, looting and rape over a period of more than six weeks. One group of innocent people after another was marched away to be massacred; for a time the shore of the Yangtze River was strewn with corpses and the river dyed red with blood as more than 300,000 innocent people perished during the massive slaughter. Here, for the first time, this cruel holocaust is recounted in a text that is by turns evocative, hair-raising, terrifying, stirring, and moving. No one can read these pages without being shaken by the grisly truth that is revealed in mountains of evidence as eyewitness accounts, news reports, confessions, court documents, and photographs.
