Comprehensive study of the Japanese War effort.
Just started this book...as i expected it is a detailed analysis of how the Japanese Culture operated under War conditions. It also shows how the Japanese society was structured along long held beliefs which were overtaken by events of the day. Max Hastings as usual, is thorough and analytical in his illustration of the actions of individual Japanese servicemen in action.
