OTD 75 years ago, Japanese General Tomoyuki Yamashita hanged for command responsibility for war crimes

Wikipedia:

The U.S. Supreme Court's 1946 Yamashita decision set a precedent, called command responsibility or the Yamashita standard, in that a commander can be held accountable before the law for the crimes committed by his troops even if he did not order them, did not stand by to allow them, or possibly even know about them or have the means to stop them.

This doctrine of command accountability has been added to the Geneva Conventions and was applied to dozens of trials in the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia.

It has been adopted by the International Criminal Court established in 2002.
