Bayonet Practice

The Japanese Imperial Army gained a infamous reputation of absolute brutality at the end of World War II when the scope of their war crimes was uncovered. A group of captured Chinese soldiers being used as live training dummies for bayonet practice. It wasn’t just an execution; soldiers were trained not to kill the POW with the first thrust so other soldiers could practice on the screaming victims on the ground.

In the second photo you can see one of the captured soldiers trying to kick away the bayonet.

If you’re into the darker side of history and war, I suggest reading the book “The Rape of Nanking" by Iris Chang. Covers Japanese war crimes in China and most of Southeast Asia, as well as their treatment of British, Australian and U.S prisoners of war.
