Shirō Ishii, 石井 四郎. Japanese microbiologist, medical officer, war criminal and director of Unit 731; the biological warfare unit of the Imperial Japanese Army. Fond of human experimentation, Shirō’s torturous curiosity lead to the deaths of over 10,000 individuals in some of the cruelest ways imaginable. Shirō’s war crimes would go unpunished however, as the United States government granted him immunity in exchange for his cooperation with America’s own biological weapons program.
