WWII JAG Case Files, Pacific – Navy

This record collection in Fold3.com includes Navy Judge Advocate General (JAG) legal case files relating to war crimes committed during World War II by Japanese soldiers and sailors. These records are sorted by case file titles (generally the name of the accused). Some files are a few pages in length, 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.
