There was the contest to kill 100 people using a sword.
The contest to kill 100 people using a sword is a wartime account of a contest between two Japanese Army officers during the Japanese invasion of China over who could first kill 100 people with a sword. The two officers were later executed on war crimes charges for their involvement. Since that time, the historicity of the event has been hotly contested, often by Japanese nationalists or revisionist historians seeking to invalidate the historiography of the Nanking Massacre.
Going back to the old ways of war by certain countries will be surprising to many people in the media or by liberals or pacifists.
However, historians will not be surprised.
