This chapter examines retribution in Shanghai, China, during the war in the 1930s and 1940s. It offers a close look at patriotic deeds on the streets of Shanghai as wild-eyed young men were recruited as assassins for the military intelligence service of the Nationalist government in Chongqing under the leadership of Dai Li. It suggests that while many leading “traitors” were tried and killed, a number of prominent collaborators were able to buy their way out on the spurious grounds such as having been secret members of Dai Li's Loyal and Patriotic Army.

Keywords:   retribution, Shanghai, China, assassins, military intelligence service, Nationalist government, Dai Li, Loyal and Patriotic Army
