Emperor Hirohito

Image 1 / 10

At the end of World War II Japan was under American control. The trial for war crimes of Emperor Hirohito was widely anticipated. It never took place. From Manchuria to Pearl Harbour this film explores Hirohito's influence over two decades of war fought in his name. From the landing of General MacArthur to the trial and execution of General Tojo, it outlines the amazing story of how American prosecutors and Japanese elite circles ensured the Emperor was not put on trial.
