dc.description.abstractIn the period between 1945 and 1952, the administration of the defeated nation of Japan was in the hands of General Douglas MacArthur, the US Commander in the Pacific Theater. MacArthur was officially appointed Supreme Commander of the Allied Powers (SCAP) the day of Japan's surrender, August 15, 1945. Shortly after invasion and surrender, the world's focus shifted from punishing the defeated to the threat of Communism and so many suspected Japanese war criminals with nationalist backgrounds became powerful allies, escaping trial and punishment. The author focuses on the cases of Arisue Seizo, Kawabe Torashiro, Hattori Takushiro, Tsuji Masanobu, and Kodama Yoshio.en_US
