Criticize throughly China’s claim, ‘Nanking      Massacre of 300,000’!
● Give evidence that no one among westerners      who lived in Nanking claimed the murder of      300,000 persons.
● Give evidence that the Japanese Army ordered      soldiers to obey the international humanitarian      law and not to make unlawful conduct.
● Verify that the burial records presented      as an evidence of the large-scale murder      were padded.
The China Communist Party (CCP) frequently      persists in requesting Japan to show an attitude      of the ‘remorse and apology’ for the behavior      that Japan took to China in past, citing      the ‘Nanking Massacre’ as an example. As      for its intention, there is no doubt that      the CCP aims at withdrawal of the ‘compensation      and financial assistance’ and the ‘concession’      from Japan as analyzed by the Library and      Congress, Congressional Research Service.      At the same time, in order for the CCP to      establish the hegemony in the post Cold War      East Asia, the CCP has to drive a wedge into      the Japan-U.S. alliance, which is an obstacle      on the road to its hegemony. Therefore it      may say that as one of measures to accomplish      this, the CCP intends to have ex-Allied Nations      recall the ‘evil act of ex-enemy Japan’ stressing      old ties of Allied Nations.
It is obviously telling of the China’s intention      that on the background of the sales campaign      of The Rape of Nanking, we can catch a glimpse      of the shadow of the CCP through the activities      of Chinese-Americans and overseas Chinese      merchant organizations in the U.S.
―OHARA Yasuo, Conclusion

The first shot, it’s the first rebuttal to the anti-Japanese campaign being eveloped in the States!
― Dedicated to the people all over the world      who love the spirit of fair play.
For a half century after World War Ⅱ, Japan      has kept silent whenever and however we were      falsely accused of this problem. Here, we      would like to break the silence for the first      time. We will not scream like the Chinese,      but set forth our views purely and fairly      as an accused standing in the dock of a courthouse,      speaking in a low tone of voice, asking the      fair judgment of the readers. ―TAKEMOTO Tadao, Preface
