WWII JAG Case Files, Pacific – Army

This record collection in Fold3.com includes Army Judge Advocate General (JAG) legal case files relating to war crimes committed during World War II by Japanese soldiers and sailors. The records are sorted by case file titles (generally the name of the accused). Some files consist of a few pages, while others may contain dozens of pages of testimony, correspondence, and court documents.

Note: War crimes committed and testimony concerning them can be gruesome, indeed, so consider yourself warned.
