    I have a handwritten and signed lethere from General Homma to all members of his defense team. It is dated days before his guilty verdict for war crimes. I cannot find reference to it anywhere and need some help to find it's way into the history of WWII war crimes.
    Thanks,
    Tom

    I just looked at this site, but it looks as though the FEMT did not begin until after the execution of General Homma. The l enter I have is from Homma to his defense team.

    And they were assiduous in collecting documents. I in no wise guarantee it's in there, but that would be the first place I would look for something like this, at least in English. Japanese sources may have what you're looking for, of course.
