History but it's fun!

Explained how the author lost his arm in the war.
Author didn't pull any punch on the long & brutal war, small minded Tojo refusal to end the war earlier or listen to "defeatist" advice from his pragmatic subordinates.
Few books on how post-war defeated Japan reorganize under United States occupation or the wheeling & dealing of ordinary Japanese veterans trying to survive.
Thick tome with a lot footnotes on events & explaining Japanese words & terms.
