Audio Book Summary
This Pulitzer Prize-winning history of World War IIchronicles the dramatic rise and fall of the Japanese empire, from the invasionof Manchuria and China to the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Toldfrom the Japanese perspective, The Rising Sun is, in the author's words,"a factual saga of people caught up in the flood of the most overwhelming warof mankind, told as it happened-muddled, ennobling, disgraceful, frustrating,full of paradox."
In weaving together the historical facts and human dramaleading up to and culminating in the war in the Pacific, Toland crafts ariveting and unbiased narrative history.
