Kazuo Aoyama

Kazuo Aoyama (靑山 和夫, Aoyama Kazuo) was a Japanese communist who joined the Republic of China during the Second Sino-Japanese War. Aoyama was on good terms with the Kuomintang, despite openly admitting he was a Communist. While Aoyama was in Chongqing, he successfully sold a printing plant to the Office of War Information (OWI).[1] Aoyama replaced Wataru Kaji as a "psychological advisor", re-educating captured Japanese soldiers.[2]
