only the higher ups that were politically convenient to prosecute ever so court. Emperor Hiroito for example did not get prosecuted for war crimes even though he was responsible for all the atrocities the Japanese Imperial Army committed throughout Asia.
Many war criminals also made deals with the US and USSR in exchange for their knowledge and expertise.
