Gun Seppuku
"Sugiyama, Army Minister. In July 1945, he was asked to take command of the First General Army, which directed defenses of eastern half Japanese mainland against the anticipated Allied invasion.
Ten days after the surrender of Japan, after finishing preparations for the final dissolution of the Imperial Japanese Army, Sugiyama committed suicide by shooting himself four times in the chest with his revolver while seated at his desk in his office."

Venner: "Une fois estompé le choc de la douleur, je ne doute pas que les uns et les autres comprendront le sens de mon geste et transcenderont leur peine en fierté."
