Los Angeles -- It is without doubt that the Second World War was the most savage global conflict. The players in this massive six year slaughter house are well known. And the ideological divide that ushered in hell on earth have been sorted, sifted, analyzed, meticulously documented and told and retold. But until recently little was known of one of the Axis powers whose reach was far beyond its grasp. The nation of Japan, though industrialized by the dawn of the Second World War was seen through the western racial prism as a demon nation whose invasion of China and the occupation of Korea set new standards of barbarism.
What was hitherto unknown, however, until recently was color film that recorded ordinary life at a time when the world was in a headlong tailspin into the bloody abyss of the most destructive war in all of human existence.
Here below is the full documentary of "Japan's War" edited from raw color film stock footage, a period more or less spanning 15 years, from the 1930's to the 1940's, of what it was like to be on the other side of the coin. In other words to be a citizen of an Axis nation where history was never given a chance to be told due to being on the losing side of the war.
