Hirohito's War offers an original interpretation of the Pacific War, balancing the existing Western-centric view with attention to the Japanese perspective on the conflict. Francis Pike offers many challenges to the standard narrative, in particular questioning popular assumptions about the origins and causes of the conflict and asking whether or not US victory was inevitable.
This book represents the most comprehensive one-volume narrative of the conflict to date, and is structured to deal with regional and chronological contexts. It provides a valuable synthesis of the literature for students of the conflict and will fascinate anyone with an interest in the Second World War.
Book Description: An antidote to Western-centric view of the Pacific War, detailing the Japanese perspective of this key conflict.
