Equally as good as the book written by Iris Chang
15 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

This film is about the Rape of Nanjing, and it is not related to the book written by Iris Chang, but it is just equally good.

What needs to be given a credit here is that the efforts of foreigners who tried to help Nanjing residents was properly shown and appreciated. I strongly recommend the audience to read the book titled the Rape of Nanjing by Iris Chang for more detailed description.
