Dozens of British and Commonwealth officers of the rank of colonel and above were captured by the Japanese at the fall of Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore and Burma. These senior officers, many of whom were decorated war heroes, were separated from the men and formations, and shipped around the Japanese Empire in one group, kept alive so that the Japanese could ritually humiliate them at every opportunity.

Felton is the author of a number of books about World War II. Felton has appeared on television as a military history expert, including the series Combat Trains (The History Channel), Top Tens of Warfare (Quest TV), and Evolution of Evil. The Coolie Generals: Britain’s Far Eastern Military Leaders in Japanese Captivity (Pen & Sword: 2008).

Dozens of British and Commonwealth officers of the rank of colonel and above were captured by the Japanese at the fall of Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore and Burma. These senior officers, many of whom were decorated war heroes, were separated from the men and formations, and shipped around the Japanese Empire in one group, kept alive so that the Japanese could ritually humiliate them at every opportunity. In direct contrast to how the Germans treated captured Allied senior officers, the Japanese inflicted the same appalling regime of starvation, beatings and hard labor on these senior prisoners, and several died through such abuse. Prominent personages treated in this way included General Percival (G.O.C. Malaya) and a host of major-generals, brigadiers, colonels and senior colonial officials. The detailed post-war testimonies given by these prominent prisoners greatly aided the Tokyo War Crimes tribunal in exposing the nature of Japanese treatment of Allied P.O.W.. It was an extraordinary story of middle-aged military professionals living a day-to-day existence at the behest of cruel and capricious gaolers. All previous P.O.W. books on the Far East have concentrated upon the well-known sufferings of the thousands of more junior officers and other ranks taken prisoner, and largely ignoring the fates of the men whose command decisions actually led to captivity.
Reviews about The Coolie Generals: Britain's Far Eastern Military Leaders in Japanese Captivity (2):
funike
excellent book well written and well factual
Fecage
indirectly supports the belief that the Japanese like the Germans (as Sal Mineo's character in Exodus advised) took the cream of the crop of rape victims for special torture away from the camps

we have Mark Felton covering this unique aspect of Japanese misconduct - there is no way those girls and boys of especial beauty and/or value/ancestry would survive - but there HAS to be a record - not just their snuff films - Japan absolutely culled the most beautiful and most innocent for transport to Tokyo.

I'm convinced that Japan and Germany exchanged HUMAN booty - not just sending carefully wrapped Chinese art objects to Germany and Austria.

Why does it matter - since so many millions perished - we don't know all their names - it matters because of who the consumers were.

Don't think Naruhito won't run for office as the Beatlesloving alternative to nasty ol' Abe - this is ALL designed:

In 1925, Konoe gained favorable public attention by supporting a universal manhood suffrage bill. Konoe's title gave him a seat in the Upper Chamber of the Diet of Japan, and in 1933, he was elected President of the House of Peers. He was awarded the Grand Cordon of the Order of the Sacred Treasure in 1934.

His grandson became Prime Minister in the 1990s.
