Dr. Sadao was a renowned doctor of Japan. He was not sent to the war, since the General might need an emergency operation. When he came across a wounded enemy soldier he did his duty as a doctor. He treated the soldier and saved his life. But he did inform the General about the soldier. When the General suggested to send his private assassins to kill the enemy soldier, he agreed to his plan. Thus we can say that Dr. Sadao cannot be termed as a traitor. In fact he was a great patriot—a patriot not only for his country but also for the mankind as a whole.
