Re: Chi Chi Jima incident, Japanese War Crimes

Thank you gentlemen for all your aid and responses.

George, I also ran across the "Flyboys: A True Story of Courage" by James Bradley source in searches and referenced on some of the F-A-G memorial pages. I have already orderer a copy, very reasonably price here

Good review by Pacific Wrecks

It will be interesting to see if Bradley details the aircraft involved as well as the crews. I have read about other incidents of Japanese cannibalism however those were of a sustenance nature at by-passed islands. This Chi Chi Jima cannibalism is my first exposure to this ritualistic form with Japanese officers eating parts of their enemy captives.
