The Kempei, by Richard M. Baker, Jr. One of the few war novels written by an American from the Japanese point of view, The Kempei illuminates unrestrained and authorized 20th-century terrorism whitewashed fromn the pages of Japanese history. Decent-hearted farm boy, Junichiro Inouye, is drawn into a world of brutal military intimidation and terror as a Kempaitai soldier in the violent subjugation of Manchuria prior to a planned takeover of China and Southeast Asia. Recaptured through the literary lens of the author, his research of period events identifies a military rule that reportedly claimed 20 to 30 million lives throughout occupied Asia. (Historical Fiction) $9.95 on Web-e-Books, 399 pages.
