Japan 1941 free pdf A "Kirkus Reviews" Best Nonfiction Book of the Year A groundbreaking history that considers the attack on Pearl Harbor from the Japanese perspective and is certain to revolutionize how we think of the war in the Pacific. When Japan attacked the United States in 1941, its leaders, in large part, understood they were entering a war they were almost certain to lose. In a groundbreaking history that considers Pearl Harbor from the Japanese perspective, certain to revolutionize how we think of the war in the Pacific, Eri Hotta poses essential questions overlooked for the last seventy years: Why did these men military men, civilian politicians, diplomats, the emperor put their country and its citizens in harm's way? Why did they make a decision that was doomed from the start? Introducing us to the doubters, bluffers, and schemers who led their nation into this conflagration, Hotta brilliantly shows us a hidden Japan eager to avoid war but fraught with tensions with the West, deluded by reckless militarism, tempted by the gambler s dream of scoring the biggest win against impossible odds and nearly escaping disaster before it finally proved inevitable."
