How many POW did the US soldiers killed? Interestingly it is rarely disclosed. When the US soldiers tried to occupy the Japan main islands, they faced a heavy resistance. Soldiers were rarely captured, and if they were, there was no logistics for them, so they were shot on spot. Thus they did not even surrender. Due to this hard resistence, and to show the world, USA decided to drop the first atomic bomb

War in particular in the Pacific was so brutal that I guess Japanese and American soldiers rarely made any prisoners.

My grandpa was there, Asians have this collectivism builtin in their genes, individual life means nothing to them, so they tend to fight recklessly and meaninglessly. The battles in eastern Asia (Japan, Korea, China) were usually far more difficult comparing to the ones in Europe. They rarely took prisoner, it was brutal, fought till the last breath. The US couldnt tolerate the cost so the A bomb was dropped (also to flex muscles to the USSR).
