In the West, much was written and documented about the German war criminals in the aftermath of World War II, from epic movies like Judgment At Nuremburg to volumes of reference books and television documentaries. But very little is known about Japan's denouement and the resulting tribunal. Here is an engrossing film told from the perspective of the Chinese judge.

The actual Tokyo Trial was an attempt to expose and convict certain Japanese military leaders of war crimes [against the Chinese during events like the Nanjing Massacre and inside Concentration Camp 731, as seen in MEN BEHIND THE SUN and BLACK JAIL]. The trial lasted for two and a half years (from May 1946 thru November 1948). The prosecution team consisted of judges from 11 nations including Australia, Canada, China, France, the UK, India, the Netherlands, New Zealand, the Philippines, the Soviet Union and the United States. When the smoke cleared, they sentenced seven Class-A War Criminals to the gallows but not before waves of unrest and violence.
