Re: Chi Chi Jima incident, Japanese War Crimes

A war diary and a deck log are not the same thing. A war diary is a generalized description of events and movements, some maddeningly vague, others in excruciating detail as I'm sure you've discovered at Fold3. A deck log, which btw are not found in Fold3 to my knowledge, is usually a watch by watch accounting of shipboard activity signed off by the OOW at the end of each watch. In the carrier world there is a flight deck log which amongst other things is a detail of launches and recoveries. A really well maintained flight deck long includes bunos.
