The first Japanese prisoner to be taken on Iwo Jima, Japan, is dragged from shell hole on May 16, 1945, where he lay buried for 1Âœ days, playing dead to Marines who used it for a fox hole. After knocking away a live grenade that lay a few inches from his hand, Marines dragged him out after he promised an interpreter that he would offer no resistance. A stretcher was thrown down and he rolled on it and was then lifted out. Photo taken moments later- https://i.redd.it/ud86n2uwrw021.jpg

Killing him softly, slowly, with cigarettes.
