The Rape of Nanking
This was a very difficult book to read. Very few people want to read about the mass murder of 19 million people. I picked this up and read it, though, not because it was enjoyable but because someone needs to be a witness to this in the same manner as we are for the Jewish Holocaust.
During World War II the Japanese Army killed as many as 19 million Chinese. I did not know this until reading this book. It is a terrible and sad account of atrocities which were done.
