Indoctrination and training
We saw this movie "Behind the Rising Sun". One scene shows Jap soldiers raping women and throwing a baby in the air and catching it with bayonets.
We saw another movie "Gung Ho" showing the capture of nine marines. The military High Command in Tokyo advised the Japs to execute all prisoners of war. The nine marine raiders were by beheaded on Kwajalein.
