Downfall: The End of the Imperial Japanese Empire


I haven't read this book, but hope to in the future. I did notice it has some very favorable reviews on Amazon.com

The book is about the end of the war in the Pacific. There are of course many controversial issues around this period of history, particularly the use of atomic bombs against Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and I understand this book offers some perspective on why this decision was made, as well as quite a little of information about the Allied plans for (and the planned Japanese defense to) Operation Olympic.

Product Description:
In a riveting narrative that includes information from newly declassified documents, acclaimed historian Richard B. Frank gives a scrupulously detailed explanation of the critical months leading up to the dropping of the atomic bomb. Frank explains how American leaders learned in the summer of 1945 that their alternate strategy to end the war by invasion had been shattered by the massive Japanese buildup on Kyushu, and that intercepted diplomatic documents also revealed the dismal prospects of negotiation. Here also, for the first time, is a comprehensive account of how Japan's leaders were willing to risk complete annihilation to preserve the nation's existing order. Frank's comprehensive account demolishes long-standing myths with the stark realities of this great historical controversy.
