Publisher's Summary

Killing the Rising Sun relates episodes from the Pacific theater of World War II, including the controversial US decision to develop and utilize atomic weapons. Fueled by confidence in their racial superiority, the Japanese exerted great effort to expand their empire throughout East Asia. Once Prime Minister Hideki Tojo convinced Emperor Hirohito to attack Pearl Harbor, war with the United States and the other Allied forces was inevitable. Although Japan had agreed to previous Geneva Conventions, they violated those agreements throughout their war effort. From their pre-World War II invasion of China until after the emperor agreed to surrender, Japanese soldiers committed unspeakable acts, including rape, murder, mutilation of corpses, and enslavement of civilians.

The apparent determination of the Japanese emperor to fight an Allied land invasion to the death further escalated the dilemma within the Roosevelt and Truman administrations over whether to use the recently invented atomic bomb.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a summary, analysis and review of the book and not the original book.
