A monumental history of Japan, documenting that nations imperial rise and fall, from the invasion of Manchuria to the dropping of the atomic bombs. In weaving together the historical facts and human drama leading up to and culminating in the war in the Pacific, Toland crafts a riveting and unbiased narrative history. In his Foreword, Toland says that if we are to draw any conclusion from The Rising Sun, it is that there are no simple lessons in history, that it is human nature that repeats itself, not history.
