  • "The third volume of [the author's] ... encyclopedic account of Japan before and after World War II. Drawing from his own experiences as a foot soldier in the Pacific Islands and from the greater sweep of history's footprints, it is a chilling antiwar document and an intimate revelation of the destruction left in the wake of the atomic bombs."--Page 4 of cover
