Prince Asaka Yasuhiko: Congratulations, Major. You'll make an excellent commander one day. But I ask myself, why is it that I give orders not to take prisoners, and you arrive with thousands? Major Ose: Please forgive me. Japanese Officer: Your Highness. Prince Asaka Yasuhiko: I didn't ask you to speak! (Japanese officer steps back and bows) Prince Asaka Yasuhiko: So, Major. What do you propose? Major Ose: Your Highness. It would be extremely difficult to execute that many prisoners. Prince Asaka Yasuhiko: Is that so? Major Ose: Furthermore, I believe such executions could be considered to be illegal. Prince Asaka Yasuhiko: Illegal? I am entrusting you personally with resolving this matter once and for all. I want no prisoner alive by tomorrow morning. We will also shell the city center. Nanking must experience the superiority of our troops.
