My experience on the war is not limited to my story in Singapore. In China CCTV (China Central TV) broadcasts a lot of war stories showing Japanese army to be bad guys. Japanese soldiers keep shouting "Baka - Stupid -" and hit Chinese civilians.
In 2001, after September 11, some TV station was broadcasting history of terrorism. Among others, they were saying that it was Japanese who invented suicide bombing. It was Kamikaze or Tokko. They mean "Divine Wind or Special Attack", respectively.
The book is about this Kamikaze. Somehow, Japanese version of suicide attack was always by Japanese Navy that time. And Japanese suicide attacks were always targeting military facilities or equipment, base, air base, battle ships, mother ships, etc... In addition, Kamikaze was always by this fighter plane called "Zero -0-".
Have you heard about "Zero Fighter"? It was most advanced Navy Fighter Plane of the time when the Pacific War started.
