Indian Nationalist Shubas Chandra Bose Meets With Heinrich Himmler, Berlin, Germany, 1941

Indian Nationalist Shubas Chandra Bose Meets With Heinrich Himmler, Berlin, Germany, 1941

Taken on 1941-01-01

"Subhas Chandra Bose (About this sound listen (help·info); 23 January 1897 – 18 August 1945 (aged 48)) was an Indian nationalist whose defiant patriotism made him a hero in India, but whose attempt during World War II to rid India of British rule with the help of Nazi Germany and Japan left a troubled legacy. The honorific Netaji (Hindustani language: "Respected Leader"), first applied to Bose in Germany, by the Indian soldiers of the Indische Legion and by the German and Indian officials in the Special Bureau for India in Berlin, in early 1942, is now used widely throughout India." 1941, exact date unknown.

Japanese Prince Yasuhiko Asaka, Japan, December 1940

Japanese Prince Yasuhiko Asaka, Japan, December 1940

Taken on 1940-12-05

"In November 1937, Prince Asaka became temporary commander of the Japanese forces outside Nanking (or Nanjing), then capital of China, because General Matsui was ill. As temporary commander of the final assault on Nanking between 2 and 6 December 1937, he allegedly issued the order to "kill all captives", thus providing official sanction for what became known as the "Nanking Massacre" or the "Rape of Nanking" (12 December 1937 – 10 February 1938). The order may have actually been issued, without the Prince's knowledge or assent, by Lieutenant Colonel Isamu Chō. He was a known radical ultra-nationalist staff member of the Central China Area Army who may have released the order under the sign manual of Asaka. This is a moot point, however, for Prince Asaka, who was nominally the officer in charge, allowed the carnage to continue for 4 days before the arrival of General Matsui."
