    A book for real history buffs! A must for the younger generation.

    Far to many Americans are unaware of the pressure the leaders of Japan were under. It is true that it was primarily of their own making.

    Shows how the prevailing customs can dictate the actions of even the highest people in government.

    A great read!

    Highly recommended.

    This was written by a Japanese scholar who has a grasp of both the Japanese scene as well as the International in 1941.

    Apart from the late Prof. Ienaga Saburo's book, I have seen no really good texts describing the Japanese side of the road to conflict in the Pacific war. This may help to provide insight as to why Japan still cannot acknowledge what they did to their Asian neighbors, while Germany has. The extract alone was engagingly written, and I shall be buying this book as soon as possible.

    It is a fast read, well written and maintained my interest. I had already read thousands of pages on WW2 and was aware that the US government knew of the potential for a Japanese attack somewhere in the Pacific. This book provided insight into the Japanese planning and the American's considerations of global conditions as a whole. The political and social forces controlling the Japanese politicians and warriors still exist today in the world and we can look at history to try to make improved decisions going forward.
