Very good look at the Japanese psyche in WW2
15 June 2008 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

Two part BBC documentary on the Japanese in World War Two focusing on why they did what they did psychologically. Very good, but not great, the film scores most of its points early where it explains why Japan went to war and why they behaved so badly. Its enlightening since it clearly puts the mindset of superiority the Japanese held in to stark relief. The film is equally stark when a couple of American soldiers reveal views of the Japanese that mirror how the Japanese saw foreigners.There is also a clear explanation of why the Japanese went on suicide missions when they really didn't want to die. Definitely worth a rental or taping should it show up on History or the Military Channel.
