To commemorate the 70th anniversary of Japan's surrender to the Allied powers, this unique volume explores World War II from an often-overlooked perspective: that of the Japanese home and military fronts. Extraordinary color photographs, film stills, and prints capture a nation eager to expand, and provide a glimpse of Kamikaze pilots, the young Emperor Hirohito on a state visit to England, the attack on Pearl Harbor, propaganda posters from the occupation of China, troops praying for victory, and allied prisoners of war at work.
