Críticas

In this installment to the series entitled Total War: New Perspectives on World War II, edited by Michael A. Barnhart and H.P. Willmott, the latter has teamed up with Haruo Tohmatsu to produce a concise account of the events that led to the outbreak of war in the Pacific against the Allies in late 1941. -- Jeff Alexander, The Univerity of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada Pacific Affairs Tohmatsu and Willmott see the coming of the Pacific War as an ever-expanding series of conflicts begun by the Japanese army in Manchuria in 1931 and continuing through 1942. By focusing on the activities of the Japanese army and navy high command rather than diplomats between 1921 and 1942, this book provides a fresh perspective on the outbreak of the Pacific War. Recommended. It will be of interest to advanced students of the Pacific War. -- C J. Weeks, Southern Polytechnic State University CHOICE The book is a lively piece of critical writing from which the university student and the general reader will derive many new insights. It is novel in concept and rich in new information. -- Ian Nish, STICERD, London School of Economics and Political Science War in History

Reseña del editor

The United States' involvement in World War II began with the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. But for Japan, the conflict began at a much earlier date. This book focuses on Japan and the events in its military history leading up to and including Pearl Harbor. Unique in its perspective, A Gathering Darkness shows how historical events in the 1920s and 1930s steered the country into war with America and its allies.
