Some brief overview of this book

Col. Yahara was one of the Japanese Imperial Armys best strategists. He had the career officers classically cool, analytical approach to warfare. The charge the foe tactics, typical of the Japanese Army, were not his style. His plan at Okinawa, the last campaign of WWII, was to dig in, inflict as many casualties as possible and buy Japan precious time to prepare for the defense of the mainland. The plan worked, so why was Col. Yahara branded a traitor?

His crime was surviving in an army that demanded its leaders go down with their troops. For three months Japanese soldiers — entrenched in caves and dugouts — fought virtually to the last man. Meanwhile, kamikazes sank 35 U.S. ships and damaged 10 times that number. The bloodletting claimed more than 12,000 American lives; more than 100,000 Japanese died.

An indispensable account and a look into the final anguish of the Japanese high command. (John Lehman, former U.S. Secretary of the Navy)

A first-hand account of one of the bloodiest encounters in the war of the Pacific, written by the Japanese strategist who designed and carried out the campaign. Editor Frank Gibneys unique perspective of having been an officer in Okinawa, who interrogated Yahara following his capture, adds a fascinating dimesion to the account. Photos. Maps.
