Injustice at the Tokyo War Crimes Trial : an honors thesis (HONRS 499)
This paper examines deficiencies in the trial of Japanese war criminals after World War Two. The judges on the bench and the procedures used in the trial were biased against the Japanese defendants. The law on the subject was interpreted by the victor nations with no debate possible from the defense. There were also notable omissions from the list of people indicted. These factors resulted in the punishment of the Japanese but not in justice.
