Hi Dan, again, I only wanted to watch the first video...not a good time for the whole world, those years. However, this video was very well done, I thought, interviewing the old men who were survivors of those times, both Japanese and Allied soldiers.

I did notice, the Burma railroad was completed October 1943, exactly one year before I was born in October 1944. Even now, I sometimes think about little babies born in times of such danger, no idea what is going on, what they are coming into!

The captured British soldiers worked for Japanse like slaves for building the railway. Most people who died are Tamils who are taken to Malaysia by the British for working in a sugarcane plantation. But Malaysia was captured by Japan and took them as workers for the railway.

Yes, I've read a couple of books about the Death railway. The Japs were ruthless captors and thought prisoners were cowards and treated them as such.

The real Bushido code, not the militaristic one that Tojo crapped out!

Rooster, I have loved the Bushido Code, which I learned about from you...I laminated a copy of it, which is still on the wall of the room I use as a study.
