    1 thought on “Japan's War: The Great Pacific Conflict

    1. Where to begin an account of World War II from the Japanese perspective Why, with a brisk history of Japan up to the Meiji Constitution in two chapters , a few chapters hitting such highlights as Japan s turn to imperialism in Korea and why the heck not, when every other Great Power was Up to the China Incident, which is perhaps the outbreak of World War II because the fighting went on and on and on until it merged with what is unquestionably World War II I note that the chapter titles are all J [...]

    2. This book was recommended for a Japanese view of events during World War II Edwin Hoyt, a son of the publisher of Portland s Oregonian newspaper, spent years as a journalist overseas, eventually marrying a Japanese woman He would die in Tokyo in 2005.He outlines development of the military dictatorship in Japan in the pre war years, when Japan was heavily involved in developing colonies in Korea, Manchuria and China following European and American colonial models And he anchors that development [...]

    3. As with other books like this, I will only point out some of the most interesting information.The book discusses Japanese history from about the mid 1800 s In talking about the Sino Japanese war, the book notes that Emperor Meiji decided Japan would attack the Soviet fleet without warning, so the attack on Pearl Harbor was not the first time the Japanese had used this strategy The attack was carried out, and then war was declared, in that order.The anti Japanese prejudice in California is discus [...]

    4. Read in the late 90 s an excellent overview of the rise of the fascist military dictatorship who corrupted Bushido and created the cult of the Emperor These two things combined a most powerful bond in the Japanese Psyche It explains that no one but the Emperor a Bi Spectaled Thin Gardner , who was seen as something akin to God Jesus Mohammed could end the war.90 million as one

    5. A well written and researched discussion of the rise of militarism in Japan in the lead up to the Second World War as well as an exploration of the logic behind the seemingly doomed campaign in the Pacific.

    6. The history of the Pacific War from the Japanese side Hoyt had access to Japanese archives, and he writes a vivid and nuanced story Recommended for any student of the Pacific War who wants a new perspective.

    7. Nice short read which provides a perspective most probably not seen in most American educational settings Very refreshing, interesting, and engaging Highly recommend.

    8. This is an interesting book as it looks at Japan s growth from 1853 through the end of WW2 from a Japanese perspective Very helpful to understand the Japanese point of view and host they justified war There seem to be many less books looking at the war in Asia from the Japanese point of view, this helps provide some context There are some mistakes around dates, probably printing errors IT was published in 1986 and i suspect there are recent books with new information but worth the read for anyo [...]
