Mitsubishi Apologizes to WWII Vets

Mitsubishi Corp. formally apologized to U.S. prisoners of war on Sunday, for their poor treatment at the company’s hands while being forced to slave in underground mines and work camps. The men were held captive by the Imperial Japanese Army after being captured during World War II.

It has been over sixty years since the end of the war that witnessed the deaths of over 50 million people and was marked by fierce warfare on a global scale, the likes of which have been unseen since – thanks to the sacrifices of Americans and Allied troops who risked and gave their lives in Japan, and around the world.
