The Fall of Japan
- By: William Craig
- Narrated by: Mark Ashby
- Length: 11 hrs and 8 mins
By midsummer 1945, Japan had long since lost the war in the Pacific. The people were not told the truth, and neither was the emperor. Japanese generals, admirals, and statesmen knew, but only a handful of leaders were willing to accept defeat. Most were bent on fighting the Allies until the last Japanese soldier died and the last city burned to the ground.
Superbly written history

One of the most chilling descriptions of the bombing of Japan
Though it makes up only about half the book Craig's detailing of first the fire and then atomic bombing of Japan paints a vivid and horrific picture.
