Summary"How do societies remember, or forget, the wartime atrocities their soldiers and citizens may have committed? In Crimes of War, leading historians explore this difficult and troubling question. Featuring original contributions on the actions of the United States in Vietnam and Korea, the Japanese in China, and the Germans during World War II, the contributors offer valuable comparative insight into the explosive politics of memory that surrounds debate over past war crimes." —Back cover
