Bix:

..Generals Matsui and Asaka insisted on staging a triumphal victory parade on horseback down the broad main thoroughfare of Nanking on December 17...at 2pm ..General Matsui,accompanied by Admiral Hasegawa,concluded the victory ceremony by bowing to the east and raising the Sun Flag from the front of the former Kuomintang Government office building."Banzai for His Majesty the Supreme Commander!" shouted Matsui three times.More than twenty thousand assembled combat troops--one third the total number occupying the city--echoed in unison.

A Japanese propaganda newsreel of the parade in Nanking from Youtube.

We do not endorse denial of the Nanking Massacre here so its silly heading should be ignored.Its a pity such rare footage gets used for whatever political agenda.

The massacre that followed is discussed in our H&WC section here:

I commend to readers my own posts on the above thread, commencing on Page 5. They inject an element of balanced rationality into the debate, including a link to a very interesting paper by an Australian scholar.

Shanghai 1937

I've just looked on the pictures in this thread. Very impressive. Some time ago I found some pictures of Japanese marines in Shanghai. On some pictures you can see Vickers-Crossley M25 armored cars.
