Recent Changes: Wondering why the line about the Japanese occupation got changed from "starving, dead, or has the women raped." Plus new line has typo.

Also, I do think Homma got a Historical Villain Upgrade here. Whoever changed it, can you offer more of an explanation? The book definitely portrayed him as responsible for the massacres, while in real life there's a huge controversy over Homma being unfairly blamed for Bataan.

The sentence was kinda awkward, I put that there in the first place, actually.

The text felt like it was trying to shift it more to the officers, but I know Homma simply says "there was a lot of resistance". He was drugged at the time of the confession, too.

Homma was ordered to have the atrocities committed as part of Grand Admiral Yamamoto's diversion plan. Whether he did so in Real Life isn't that relevant.
