I once read somewhere that on D-day, the Germans found a position that they believed to be a paratrooper radio post, so they opened up on it. In fact it was a kind of field hospital, and the doctor (a Lt., I can't remember his name) opened the door a bit and put his red-cross helmet out. The Germans immediatly stopped firing, and brought their wounded there too, so that American doctor, and the German ones could treat wounded - Gemans and Americans alike - in the same place. IIRC the american doctor was captured, but later liberated by paras, and the Germans became captives.
Isn't this considered a great dishonor by the japs?
Many "Japanese" soldiers were actually Korean, Manchurian or Taiwanese who were drafted into the IJA. They didn't share the Japanese zeal to die for the Emporer, and didn't subscribe to the Bushido Code either. Can't really blame them at all.
Hi sorry this is modern, however it seems to fit the thread, lofty.
