Sad but true accounts of Korean women in sexual slavery 18 Dec. 2000
By C. Joan Villanueva - Published on Amazon.com
This book is compiled of the true experiences of Korean women, some as young as 14, who were forced into prostitution by the Japanese army. These war crimes have never been accounted or formally apologized for, and though this happened to thousands of women from China, the Philippines and Korea their experiences have been sought to be forgotten due to shame, ignorance and prejudice. This moving, often harrowing book is a wonderful tribute to not forget the hardships of these women and what they have been through. Some of them had their lives ruined, and some married and attempted to live normally- but none of them ever forgot the brutally experienced by a heartless and cruel military power. War brings much hardship and tragedy, and this is a powerful way to remember the past and not repeat history in the future.

True Stories of the Korean Comfort Women 7 May 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I am a 16 year old student enrolled in an International School in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. After reading this book, it did expand my knowledge on the happenings during the early 1930's to the end of the Pacific War during 1945. The stories in this book are actual true stories told by survivor comfort women who have built up the courage to share their embarrasing past with the public. Many of these women during their time as comfort women were as young as 12 - 21 years of age. They share the events of getting sexually transmitted dieases to getting beating up by a soldier for refusing their commands. The reason I gave this book 3 stars is simply because there are times where you feel after reading the first few stories that you've read the whole book. Then again, it's interesting to hear the different perspectives these women have to share about their experiences. It's nice how each individual had their own unique way of expressing their feelings. If one is really interested in the way comfort women were recruited, lived and some general statistical information on Korean comfort women, then this may be the book you're looking for. I do recommend this book but only if you are really interested in reading about how these women felt during their time as comfort women.

More books like this should be written. 17 May 2000
By Chow Ching - Published on Amazon.com
I know thi ws book is repetitious, but I appreciate how the women are willing to stand up and let the whole world know about the nasty thing the Japanese did and are trying to cover up. If you also read " the Rape of Nanking", you'll get a fuller picture, this book cover only a small part. I recommend you read this. A japanese soldier publish a book about the rape of Nanking and was sentenced as defamation of the Japs Imperial army. They are trying to cover up and picture the Chinese as the history forger. Now, read this, at least you got another piece of history from another victim. let us all remember the facts when 21st century come and don't let this happen again.
