Sorry for making it sound I'm coming out as a revisionist, but it makes you think if the anti Japanese propaganda about Japanese soldiers brutality was already in place by the time of the invasion of the Philippines, much about the extent of their crimes must have been blown out of proportion for the trials after the war.
