WW2 Cannibalism: On one occasion in 1944, the Japanese shot down 9 American airmen. Of the 9, 8 managed to make it to the Chichi Jami shoreline where they were imprisoned by the Japanese. 4 of the 8 were slowly butchered (refrigeration was an issue so it 'made sense' to keep them alive) and served up. The 1 airman shot down that wasn’t taken by the Japanese was George HW Bush.
