cuz i said so
The Japanese soldiers had Bushido Kodeks which said that a soldier should rather die then give up. For them a POW had no honor.
The Bushido code taught that it was more honorable to die than to surrender.
They were Japanese soldiers who followed the bushido code of honor and fought for their emperor to the deAth sword was their most prized posession
Because in Japanese, The way of the warrior translates into Bushido
Bushido was a code of conduct for warriors.
The Bushido code is the Japanese way of the warrior. It places honor above all, even one's life. Japanese soldiers in World war II would fight until killed, or commit suicide rather than be captured. It also meant that they showed little mercy to those they captured, treating them with contempt and often killing POWs or working them to death.
The Japanese Samurai were the people who followed the code of Bushido. This was their code of Chivalry.
On Guadalcanal, the Americans were amazed that some of the Japanese soldiers fought them hand to hand with swords. This is in the strictest tradition of Samurai. But, moreover, the indoctrination of these men and the culture of the Samurai pervaded Japanese society. Bushido called for courtesy to your enemy only if they merited it. If the enemy demanded bushido before death and the Japanese executioner could not provide it, the condemned were supposed to be allowed to live. But to surrender was the lowest thing that any warrior could do and called for execution.
The Japanese refer to the Samurai as Bushido. This refers to members of the military nobility prior to modern times. Bushi means warrior, and Bushido means the way of the warrior.
Samurai, also known as Bushido, was the later name of the warrior in the Bushi code. Bushi means warrior and Bushido means the way of the warrior then later Bushido was replaced with Samurai however you do not pronounce it Samuraido just Samurai. Samurai means the way of the warrior in Japanese.
Probably, but since they are more interested then death than dishonor because of the Bushido code, there aren't probably that many.
Bushido was the samurais' code and way of like and one who did not follow it was not seen with honor or respect
The main elements a bushido warrior should follow, is courage in battle, and loyalty to their shogun. They also should show a passion for education.
A Bushido which was renamed Daimyo under the Ashikaga Shogunate.
It was similar to the code of chivalry of the knights.
Morality, Courage, Benevolence, Respect, Honesty, Honor, Loyalty
the Bushido code was a Japanese honour code, where the Japanese would commit suicide instead of surrendering. the did not believe in surrender and were taught to take their own lives as apposed to disobeying their honourable code. the Japanese therefor did not respect POW that surrendered and so treated them terribly, killing most of them.
It is not "bushito" but "bushido," a many centuries old moral code followed by the samurai emphasizing self discipline, martial arts, and honor. Live by the sword, die by the sword. To surrender is dishonorable.
