The Emperor's Naked Army Marches On

Synopsis

Kenzo Okuzaki served in the Thirty-Sixth Engineering Corps, which rather than surrender to the Australian troops at the end of the war, scattered into the New Guinea jungle. Out of more than a thousand soldiers, only thirty survived. Partly because of his dissatisfaction with Emperor Hirohito's attitude, he decides to wage a crusade. His aim: to force the Japanese emperor to personally accept responsibility for the Japanese war crimes.
