Originally done as a silent movie, then redone into a talkie before being released with spot color done dyed into the film. True, the rice was of inferior quality -- actually the sweepings of warehouse floors, with so much dirt, sand and gravel mixed in with it that only after repeated washings was it fit to cook and serve; and even then some of the foreign material remained in it -- so much, in fact, that many of the prisoners complained of having their teeth cracked by the stones and gravel it contained.

Fearing the hysteria would soon spread to his troops along the border, General Penaranda ordered an immediate counterattack. Many had just arrived and had not fired a bullet in anger. Most significantly, it was related to the strength of the emotional bonds among soldiers and between soldiers and their commanders. 36 This research led the US military psychiatrist Albert Glass to conclude that perhaps the most significant contribution of World War II military psychiatry was recognition of the sustaining influence of the small combat group or particular members thereof, variously termed ‘group identification,’ ‘group cohesiveness,’ ‘the buddy system,’ and ‘leadership.’ 37 Research conducted after World War II demonstrated that only around 40% of all cases of nervous breakdown took place overseas (and only a fraction of these in personnel at the front lines), whereas around 60% occurred in the armed forces within the United States. 38 These findings indicate that psychiatric disorder was not primarily related to extended frontline duty but to a variety of other factors, including lack of morale.

Away to the east, storm clouds are piled up like great lumpy heaps of mashed potatoes. The Russian POWs were, however, excluded from receipt of Red Cross food and clothing parcels (no doubt owing to the fact that Russia was not a signatory to the Geneva Convention). The notions of 'saving face' and the avoidance of shame have also been an integral part of Japanese culture. If you're looking for the start of that ethos in the American military, your best best might be to start with the French and Indian War that began in 1756, 20 years before the United States declared independence from the British.

The effects were greater felt in later years when many children whose parents were exposed to the fallout developed thyroid cancer and neoplasms.

July 6, 1869 - Voters ratify a new state constitution, often called the Underwood Constitution, rejecting separate provisions that would have disfranchised men who had held civil or military office under the Confederacy. In 1987, the Convention Against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment entered into force.

A brig is a United States military prison aboard a United States Navy or Coast Guard vessel, or at an American naval or Marine Corps base. Between 1941 and 1944, Sullivan’s screening methods excluded 12% (almost 2 million) of 15 million men examined, which was about 6 times the rejection rate of World War I. 10 Of all men rejected for medical reasons, 37% were excluded on neuropsychiatric grounds. 11 However, the expected effects of screening did not materialize during World War II: the reported incidence rate for war neurosis in the US armed forces was at least double the rate during World War I.
