In 1937 “The Rape of Nanking”, in which four hundred thousand Chinese residents met death through unimaginable horrors, was the most gruesome example of brutality tied to an ethos of racial superiority the world has seen. Not only did they cruelly rape and murder girls and women, they tortured men, babies, sick, the elderly, etc. They stole from them and treated them worst than dirt. Even today, Japan as a country denies the event ever happened regardless of all the videos, pictures, and victims that have been provided as irrefutable proof. Many of their slaughtering methods against the Chinese were used as examples for the Germans to use against the Jewish. But at least the Germans owned up to their atrocities and live with the embarrassment of the horrific crimes they committed against innocent people. a) Introduction Axis Powers (who) Allied Powers (who) Germany, Italy, Japan France, Great Britain, Soviet Union, China, US, and all other associated allies b) Japan’s War in China When/Where?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
