Brutality so fierce it shocked the Nazis is relived in the one-hour History Undercover: Rape of Nanking. For years, the Japanese invasion of the Chinese city of Nanking in 1937 was buried, ignored by historians overwhelmed with a growing list of worldwide atrocities. The History Channel finally remembers the 370,000 Chinese that died at the hands of cruel soldiers. When the Japanese forces entered the city on December 13, they had orders to kill all captives. They carried out this plan with cold-hearted precision using torture, burning, and even live burial. From forced incest to decapitation of children, the acts committed where some of the worst ever seen. Heroic businessman John Rabe provides much of the details through his diary. Unbelievable photos and interviews with descendants of the victims fill out this sad tale. ~ Sarah Ing, Rovi
