There's no solution except to break the power of Chiang Kai-shek by capturing Nanking. That is what I must do.
Prince Asaka had joined the army only about ten days before its entry into Nanking and in view of the short time he was connected with this army I do not think he can be held responsible. I would say that the Division Commanders are the responsible parties.
I am confident that the day is not far distant when the light of peace shine again.
Orderly discipline and morale within an army was the responsibility of the Division Commander.
