Waves of Hateby Bridgland, Tony
Naval Atrocities of the Second World War
2002, United States Naval Inst.
Hardcover, 256 pages
From the publisher: "Was chivalry a casualty of twentieth-century global warfare? According to this disturbing look at tragic naval incidents in World War II, the answer is yes. Drawing on official and unofficial records, personal testimony, and little-known, previously published works, Tony Bridgland catalogs atrocities perpetrated by all sides, the Allies as well as the Germans and Japanese. The author describes in gripping detail the sinking of hospital ships and neutral liners and the abandonment and gunning down of survivors. An additional chilling reminder of the cost of total war is the horrific story of the Japanese hellships."
