        World War II Japanese Chichi Jima War Crimes Archive

      Guam: United States Pacific Fleet: Commander Marianas, 1946. Archive of Documents. Very Good. 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 managed to escape 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 . . . ." 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." These documents come from the estate of Ms. Vivian Kilmer, 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. What a loveless world calls 'publicity' is nothing but the disease of unreality; and I loathe it. If you ask me for an individual, I give you William Shakespeare. E.E. Cummings."[With:] One page Typed Letter, signed, from Cummings' wife, Marion Morehouse, written in 1934 during her and Cummings' stay in Tunisia at Baron Huene's villa at Hammamet, expressing disdain for the open homosexuality of the Tunisian men, "There isn't much to write about as we hardly ever leave our place. The people down here are terrible, with few exceptions. They're all queer and such queers you have never seen ?".

      [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. Mitchell, British Equestrian Artists, pp. 407-08; Ordeman, The Aquatints, Drypoints and Etchings of The Derrydale Press, p. 61

        Scrapbook of Soldier's WWII Service in the Persian Gulf Command.

      Tehran and other places, 1943-1946. - Folio (312 x 324 mm). Green 1940s photo album. 38 pp. on 20 leaves. Includes 48 gelatin silver b/w photographs of mid-1940s Iran stored within two tipped-in envelopes. Intriguing mixed-media scrapbook of W. W. Boger (1915-90), a WWII soldier stationed for the majority of his service with the Persian Gulf Command, Iran. The album was probably assembled by his wife, Louise, during and/or after the war. Unlike many similar war service albums with their training photos, personal documents, correspondence and memorabilia, this scrapbook is unique in that it boasts a remarkable collection of fourty-eight original photographs of Iran during the end and immediate aftermath of the War. The snapshots and souvenir photos (some apparently removed from an earlier scrapbook) include the Shah and his wife, numerous specimens of architecture, street scenes and children, bazaars, executions (one of two body-less heads; the other notes on reverse: "A couple of thieves they just finished shooting"), a photo of a woman nursing an older child on the street ("Chow time"), etc. (most captioned on reverse, some not well legible). Also present are five mounted photos of the US hospital, base, etc.; a Dec. 1945 Time magazine cover story on the Shah; and a mimeo 27-page soldier's guide to Iran. The typescript of an original, unpublished poem (very likely by Boger himself) describes the disillusionment of the U.S. servicemen in the land of a Thousand and One Nights: "[.] Toilets know no water, sewers there are none, / Streets, mud holes, and offal that stinks in the midday sun. / Body sores and blindness, limbs twisted, what a sight / To see these helpless people asleep, on sidewalks cold at night. / [.] The women and the donkeys share in all the labors, / While their lazy, useless men-folks go calling on the neighbors. / You walk around from morn to night and many sights you see, / But the funniest one you gaze upon is the men who squat to pee. / If toilets were built in the thousands, in this very a[n]cient land, / The natives would use them to sleep in, they still prefer the sand. [G]raft and corruption, dysentery and smells / Are constantly beside you, no matter where one dwells [.]". - The Persian Gulf Command was a relatively small station; its establishment marked the beginning of formal modern U.S. military involvement in the Middle East. The command was originally founded to assist both British and Russian forces in maintaining supply lines, but also - and perhaps more importantly - to secure oil fields from both Germany itself and Persian Axis sympathizers within Iran. It also served as host to several important U.S. military hospitals. Boger, a Montana native, was sent to Iran after completing his training as a medic at Fort Douglas, UT, and Fort Barkeley, TX. He was assigned to 256th Station Hospital in Ahwaz, the first U.S. Hospital in the Persian Gulf theatre. Additional scrapbook material includes censored letters, telegrams, and V-Mail home, copies of Boger's orders and life insurance policy, uniform patches, newspaper clippings, currency from numerous countries, Iranian bottle labels, etc. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
