Japanese prisoners on allied submarines during the Second World War
Sturma, M. (2008) Japanese prisoners on allied submarines during the Second World War. In: 6th Annual Hawaii International Conference on Arts and Humanities, 11 - 14 January 2008, Honolulu, Hawaii
Despite the tendency of the Japanese to resist capture, and the reluctance of submarines to pick up survivors, small numbers of prisoners were taken by Allied submarines. At times these prisoners became the objects of ill-treatment, but the evidence suggests that in most cases there was accommodation on both sides. Proximity and familiarity frequently served to change the attitudes of Allied sailors toward individual Japanese, if not the Japanese generally.
