History. Military. Nonfiction. HTML:The New York Times bestselling account of one of history's most brutal ?? and forgotten ?? massacres, when the Japanese army destroyed China's capital city on the eve of World War II
In December 1937, one of the most horrific atrocities in the long annals of wartime barbarity occurred. The Japanese army swept into the ancient city of Nanking (what was then the capital of China), and within weeks, more than 300,000 Chinese civilians and soldiers were systematically raped, tortured, and murdered. In this seminal work, Iris Chang, whose own grandparents barely escaped the massacre, tells this history from three perspectives: that of the Japanese soldiers, that of the Chinese, and that of a group of Westerners who refused to abandon the city and created a safety zone, which saved almost 300,000 Chinese.
Drawing on extensive interviews with survivors and documents brought to light for the first time, Iris Chang's classic book is the definitive history of this horrifying episode.

Read on Audio. This was the story of the really disturbing history of the atrocities that occurred in Nanking by the Japanese during WWII. In the first quarter or so, where the main descriptions of what went on were given was a really intense read. There are images that I'm sure I'll never be able to scrub out of my brain. The rest of the book was about the aftermath and what the world knew, what the US and the other allies knew. Almost as tragic is the fact that even to this day, there is efforts to ignore, obfuscate and deny that this ever occurred. While Germany has paid billions of dollars in reparations for the Holocaust, Japan has never paid anything to China and the city of Nanking for what went on (a Holocaust in its own right). As I said in an earlier post, people, in general, are awful. One amazing high point that I learned was that John Rabe, who worked for Siemans in China and was a Nazi during the war, did much to save thousands of Nanking citizens, created the Nanking Safety Zone and documented and filmed some of the atrocities. It is an important subject that we should all know about. Not for the faint of heart, but I recommend it. ( )

A gut-wrenching read but a necessary history to not be forgotten. ( )

Incredible book but even better story about the author and the book itself. It's hard to believe when people think of war crimes in ww2 everyone assumes it's Germany and the concentration camps you're talking about but the Japanese War Crimes were just as, if not more, sadistic than the Nazis. It's hard to imagine this being such recent history. The author of this book actually becomes a part of the story because she committed suicide about 7 years after finishing this book. She was working on another book about another Japanese war crime, the Battan Death March. She started deteriorating fairly quickly and killed herself. Her husband writes an epilogue to finish the book and it's really interesting and so tragic. I also didn't know the lengths Japan was currently going to try and whitewash this part of history and just like they are Holocaust deniers, they are also many people who say the Rape of Nanking didn't happen, or didn't happen to the extent that it did. I hope this book serves the purpose of opening peoples eyes to the brutal truth that the Japanese military did to Chinese soldiers and civilians. 5 stars for sure. The author has an autobiography written about her and I'm interested in reading that too. ( )

I had no idea. This is not a book for the faint-hearted, as it is quite graphic, but not gratuitously so. Iris Chang describes the atrocities of the Rape with the kind of language to provoke heartbreak, revulsion, rage, shock...

I did know beforehand about an event in history called the Rape of Nanking, and I had heard about the Comfort Women of WWII, however, as many can relate, I was given a sanitized version of the history. In many ways I feel like I've been robbed, or made to swallow what "history" my government has deemed proper to teach to its people. Hopefully someday, nations/religions can stop trying to hide their shame, learn to embrace it and prevent it from happening again.

I very much enjoyed Anna Fields narration of the book, and I may purchase a physical copy to see if there is a reference section with which I can learn more. ( )

There are several important lessons to be learned from Nanking, and one is that civilization itself is tissue-thin.
Apparently some quirk in human nature allows even the most unspeakable acts of evil to become banal within minutes, provided only that they occur far enough away to pose no personal threat.
