to perpetuate the memory and history of our dead

21.0 Other IJA stories

In this section I will present the stories of IJA soldiers and their actions in Thailand during and following the war.

For a variety of reasons, more than a few decided NOT to return to Japan. Over the years, they have told their stories and we have recorded some of them here. [Also see Section 19.0 for similar interviews]

My sincere gratitude to the members of the Thai-Burma railway explorer group (TBREG) on Facebook at for faithfully recording and posting these stories.
