This collection stems from a research project conducted by Suzannah Linton, a law professor formerly at the University of Hong Kong (currently at Bangor University in UK). Professor Linton collected 46 case files of war crimes trials held by the British military in Hong Kong after World War II that involved 123 accused persons, all Japanese nationals. Due to the copyright restrictions, the actual case files can only be accessed at a university in Hong Kong, but the website makes freely available other materials in the collection, including detailed case notes, photographs from the same period, personal accounts, and a bibliography.
This seems the first such collection that has been digitized. Does anyone know similar collections on the web?
