World War II in Asia is mostly about the march of American Marines across the Pacific in Western eyes. The Battles of Midway and Coral Sea are taught to our children. But we rarely look at the land war in Asia because we weren’t heavily involved. What most don’t know is that thirty-five million people died in Asia, victims of the literally genocidal conflict between Japan, China, and India. The entire region was devastated almost beyond the capability of rebuilding.
