DENVER, COLORADO, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, June 20, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — “The history of war is written by the victors,” hearsay. In this book, the defeated Japanese perspective is presented. The atomic bomb, Emperor Hirohito, General MacArthur and the end of World War II were familiar to generations born in the 20th century. It’s been 77 years since. There have been thousands of books written and several hundred films produced, so the majority of the world’s population has had enough. Looking back, however, behind this greater global conflict, the author exclaims that there are many “missing gaps” between the United States and Imperial Japan, which have never been covered by the media and scholars. Of the history. Therefore, these “key events” that took place during the war never surfaced and are still completely unknown to the world even today, almost eight decades after the war. As a bilingual journalist, author Marie Ueda uncovers the two sides of war history or information hidden by the two governments, as well as her own interviews with veterans of the American Pacific War, whom she has compiled into a single volume, giving a deep dimension and clear understanding of WWII.
The author first questions the nature of human conflicts. Since the Meiji Restoration, Japan has entered into three overseas wars – with China, Imperial Russia and the United States of America. They are huge countries compared to Japan, and they had strong military powers in the world. Why did Japan fight with them? His answer lies in the “passage of Japanese history”, explains the author. The era of the discovery of new world territorial explorations by the West and the colonial empires begins in the 15th century, the Shogunate of Japan refusing to join the West to become a member of Christianity. Instead, they chose isolation and closed doors to the West; what is called “national isolation”. Isolation lasted 260 years and it was Japan’s most peaceful time – no more civil wars or religious conflicts with Westerners – during this time Japanese culture evolved and flourished – no outside intervention. When American Commodore Mathew Perry arrived in Japan in the mid-1800s, the Japanese shogunate realized that most of its neighboring East Asian nations had been “colonized” by the West and the Japan was alone. This has become an alarming sign and a new threat to Japan. In order to avoid being invaded or colonized, Japan quickly armed itself to protect itself. After the start of the Meiji Restoration, within 40 years, Japan built up its own military force.
World War II ended dramatically, as we know it was the most extraordinary end of war in all 2,000 years of human history, due to the use of “bombs atomic”. Referring to atomic bombs, focusing on the last war year of 1945, the author exclaims that two atomic bombs were not the reason the Japanese surrendered. Even after receiving the deadliest destructive bombs against humanity, the Japanese army did not want to surrender. They still wanted to keep fighting the Americans. Why? Because Imperial Japan was also developing its own atomic bombs and planning to retaliate against the United States. A race to produce atomic bombs was going on in both countries during the war. The decision to use atomic bombs to end the war, President Truman made the right decision. As a result, he prevented Japan from becoming “communism”, a planned invasion by communist Soviet Russia. Truman became Commander-in-Chief after the death of President Roosevelt and was sworn in as a new president without knowing the progress of the Manhattan Project. Although he had no experience in presidential diplomacy, he had to make an urgent decision about whether the US military should use him or not. He has done a good job at this critical juncture in our civilization. He was a remarkable president.
The author deepens his research: the German origin of the atomic bomb and the reason why Nazi Germany allied itself with Japan. Hitler’s interests in Japan were Bushidui, samurai philosophy, and the spirit of Japanese warriors.
Referring to the progress in the production of atomic bombs, Germany was ahead of America and Japan, because they had “uranium”. When the Allied Army occupied Germany months before its surrender, it found “two atomic bombs” that were ready to be deployed. These “German-made atomic bombs” may have been used on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Prior to his death, Hitler supplied Japan with uranium, but it was confiscated by the US Navy, and the US military was able to build “17 more atomic bombs” to continue attacking other Japanese cities. But this plan was stopped by President Truman. Truman had a clear conscience; he practiced true human morality. He was indeed the best American leader at this most critical moment of the world crisis.
There were so many “weird twists and ironies” as the war developed, and Marie Ueda recounts in detail as a story investigator. In her book “JAPAN 1945: Atomic Bomb, Emperor Hoirohito, General MacArthur”, she reports the political events and the history of the war on both sides: the United States and Japan, as well as Germany. While many historical scholars write “compartmentalized history”, “JAPAN 1945” encompasses everything in one volume so that readers understand and can see the full picture of the war. Hearsay, “Truth is stranger than fiction”, yes indeed. Readers of “JAPAN 1945” would surely be amazed and amazed by his “discoveries”. In this regard, Ms. Ueda’s work is a unique presentation.
