In recent years, Japanese leaders repeatedly paid homage to the Yasukuni Shrine, a Shinto shrine located in Tokyo, Japan, dedicated to the spirits of soldiers and others who died fighting on behalf of the Emperor of Japan. The shrine is a source of considerable controversy primarily because it also enshrines 1,068 people who were convicted of war crimes by a post World War II court, among whom are 12 convicted and 2 suspected Class A war criminals ("crime against peace").

The purpose of this book is to expose the war crimes committed by the 14 Class-A war criminals (such as the Japanese Hitler -- Hideki Tojo, Japanís War Minister and Prime Minister during WWII, and Iwane Matsui, the prime culprit of Nanjing Massacre of 1937) enshrined in the Yasukuni Shrine, and tells the world why countries like China, North Korea, and South Korea firmly oppose the shrine visits by high-ranking Japanese government officials.
