Guide Forgotten Heroes & Forgotten Places (Volume II)
But Scott breaks new ground by mining war crimes records, after-action military reports and other primary sources for the agonizing testimony of Philippine survivors and witnesses of more than two dozen major Japanese atrocities during the battle — and the ferocious American response. The frenzy of Japanese massacres defies imagination. Countless women were raped and tortured, their babies tossed in the air and bayoneted. Patients and doctors were stabbed at hospitals, nuns and priests hanged at churches, children tossed into pits with grenades.
Marauding Japanese troops burned people alive in convents, schools and prisons.
They simply buried others alive. In one charnel house, they cut a hole in the second floor and then led scores of blindfolded civilians upstairs, made them kneel by the edge and decapitated them with swords. Elsewhere, they crammed hundreds of men into a sweltering stone dungeon, locked the iron door and let them starve to death. The mass murder was not random.

Against them was a U. They fired millimeter howitzers at point-blank range to dislodge the enemy and used tanks, flamethrowers and bazookas to kill the rest. They fought block by block, house by house, room by room, leveling hundreds of city blocks. Estimates of the civilian dead range from , to , Iwabuchi, who had presided over one of the most barbaric massacres of the war, apparently committed suicide rather than surrender, although his body was never found.
The terrible battle had a curious afterlife. Yamashita finally surrendered several weeks after the war had formally ended. Yet the first war crimes trial in the Pacific proved a rushed, makeshift affair. Yamashita was not charged with participating in the atrocities, or ordering them, or even knowing about them. Not surprisingly, he was found guilty and sentenced to hang. His American lawyers filed an emergency appeal to the U. Supreme Court. It ultimately ruled against Yamashita, dooming him to the gallows, but is remembered mostly for the two impassioned dissents.
