Mitsubishi ... and World War II Slave Labor

George Ed Cobb

Excerpt from The Parade Magazine, June 17, 2001. Authored by Peter Maas.

Cobb was shipped to a copper mine in northern Japan owned by the Mitsubishi corporate empire. Clad only in gunnysack like garments, the POWs had to trudge to the mine through l0-foot-high snowdrifts in bitter winter cold. Of 10 captured Sealion crewmen, Cobb is the sole survivor. "I try not to remember anything," he says. "I want it to be a four-year blank."
