This volume is a history of the Japanese drive for the conquest of Greater East Asia. It includes an account of the Malayan campaign and the Fall of Singapore, followed by an outline of the dominant features of the campaign in S E Asia and the Pacific and ending with the attack on Japan and the unconditional surrender. As a prisoner in Tokyo, the author was able to observe the reactions of the people and the government to the bombing of Japan, and by revealing their overwhelming defeat, to dispose of the fiction that surrender was brought about by two atomic bombs. The outstanding value of the work is its analysis of the fundamental problems of Japan.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'An erudite understanding of Japan's history, language and religious systems.'- The Socialist Leader

'Among absorbing pages are the account of the military bloodbath of February 1936; the bombing of Tokyo by the B29 and Stalin's treachery in concealing from the Allies that Jpaan had asked him to sue for peace some time before Hiroshima....the book...is to be recommended.' - World Review

'The historical section is most useful - his description of life as POW interpreter is memorable.' - Illustrated London News
