        World War II Japanese Chichi Jima War Crimes Archive - - Beheadings & Cannibalism

      United States Pacific Fleet: Commander Marianas, Guam 1946 - This is a collection of official documents from the War Crimes Trial of Lieutenant General Yoshio Tachibana, Vice Admiral Kunzio Mori, and twelve subordinates which was convened in August of 1946 at Headquarters, Commander Marianas by Rear Admiral C. A. Pownall. The Japanese officers and men were all accused of summarily executing eight of nine U.S. Navy aviators who were shot down over the island of Chichi Jima. After the senior Japanese army officer on the island, General Tachibana, declared that all of the men would be executed "to boost the fighting morale of the Japanese troops" the eight captured aviators were publicly bayoneted, beat to death with clubs, and/or beheaded. Following their death, two Japanese surgeons cut out the livers of four of the men and also removed parts of their thighs. These were presented to one of Tachibana's staff officers, Major Matoba, who had the livers grilled and the thighs made into sukiyaki as a meal to enrich the martial spirit of the island's leadership. After Japan's unconditional surrender, American forces occupied the island and were surprised to find no prisoners of war. Although the Japanese leadership initially attempted to hide the atrocity, many witnesses provided the truth and some of the perpetrators confessed. All but one of the defendants were found guilty to some degree, and three, including Tachiban and Matoba, were executed by hanging. Oh, the ninth downed aviator, the one who escaped, was George Herbert Walker Bush. His parachute landed off-shore and he managed to out-paddle pursuing Japanese in his inflatable survival raft until he was fortunately rescued by an American submarine, the USS Finback. The archive contains over 150 pages of mimeographed text that describes the grisly atrocities in detail. It includes 1) A summary sheet identifying all participants in the trial and showing their locations within the court room, 2) The convening document titled "Charges and Specifications - in the case of Lieutenant General Tachibana . . . [and all of the other defendents" 3) Two Arguments for the Prosecution by Lieutenants Field and Suss, 4) Six Arguments for the Accused by Commander Carlson, Lieutenant Commander Dickey, Mr. Ijichi, Mr. Toda, Mr. Ito, and Mr. Morikawa, and 5) An original court-room pencil sketch of Tachibana by "Hughes." For more information, see Sorties into Hell: The Hidden War on Chichi Jima by Chester G. Hearn and Flyboys: a True Story of Courage by James Bradley. These documents come from the estate of one of the court reporters who saved them after the trial.

Followed on a separate sheet by "individuality always was and always will be the one and only reality: I love it.

        APACHE. HAND-COLORED SPORTING ENGRAVING PRIVATELY PRINTED FOR WILLIAM WOODWARD BY FRANK J. LOWE, FORMERLY OF THE DERRYDALE PRESS

      [New York: Frank J. Lowe], 1946 - Martin Stainforth is regarded as Australia's leading horse painter, although he was an established artist in his native England before emigrating in 1908. In 1925 he went to America for an extended stay, during which time he painted a number of leading horses, including some of the William Woodward stable which were reproduced as prints by The Derrydale Press. He was noted for his painstaking efforts in making numerous working sketches and watercolors until he felt he had the image just right. States Mitchell: 'stainforth's detail and accuracy in likeness were very fine and very natural. He avoided the pitfalls of flatness and photographic stiffness so often found in this type of work". Printed for William Woodward, a continuation of the series originally begun by The Derrydale Press; when the Press closed in 1942, Frank J. Lowe, its vice- president and sales manager, continued the production of high-quality prints, including additional ones for presentation by Mr. Woodward to his friends First Issue. Image size 14 x 17 inches; with engraved legend and margins. Framed. Slight foxing to image and margin.
