Escape from Manchuria: THE RESCUE OF 1.7 MILLION JAPANESE CIVILIANS TRAPPED IN SOVIET-OCCUPIED MANCHURIA FOLLOWING THE END OF WO by Paul K. Maruyama

In the closing days of WWII, the Soviet Union attacked and occupied Japanese-controlled northern China, then called Manchuria. Immediately, misery and death from cold, hunger, disease, and brutality descended upon the Japanese civilian residents at the hands of the Soviet Army and revenge-seeking mobs and bandits. Nearly 2,500 Japanese, mostly the elderly and children, died daily. Three courageous Japanese men embarked on a secret mission and escaped to Japan to eventually bring an end to the Manchurian nightmare. In the riveting story, Escape from Manchuria, the son of one of the three courageous men narrates a compelling tale of the rescue and repatriation of nearly 1.7 million noncombatant Japanese that commenced almost a year after the surrender of Japan. Escape from Manchuria describes the indispensable role that General Douglas MacArthur and his staff played in the repatriation. It also discloses the vital role played by the Catholic Church in Manchuria and in Japan in assisting the three men to achieve this monumental success. The heroics of the three men have hardly been recognized, even in Japan, because they took on the mission of rescue as private citizens, without the consent or knowledge of the then utterly helpless Japanese government. This is the true story of their courage, determination, and sacrifice to save the lives of their fellow Japanese.
