Description
A member of the British Commission for Military History and a Fellow of the Royal Asiatic Society as well as the author of Mud, Blood and Poppycock and Blood, Sweat and Arrogance, Gordon Corrigan gives us a broad reassessment of World War II, from its origins to its prosecution, arguing that it was in fact two separate conflicts against two very different enemies.

"A superlative big picture.... The author masterfully presents the military buildup in Japan, the rise of extreme nationalism, emperor worship and Japanese sense of racial superiority as factors feeding the smoldering resentment against the Western powers.... Engaging reading down to the footnotes."Kirkus Reviews
