A must read for any student of WWII history. While much of history focuses on the European theater, Ienaga offers an unforgettable insight into military, educational and political events that shaped Japan's involvement in the Pacific theater. One will truly understand why it was not only a war in Europe, but a World War. This is especially enlightening as told from the prospective of a Japanese citizen who was educated in the 1920's and 1930's prior to the Japanese military machine dominating Japan's educational system.
