Others have written excellent reviews about this book and I m not going to repeat the main aspects The greatest lesson to me though is the mindnumbing emptyness of collective militarism Nearly all of the people featured in the book struggle to find meaning from the chaos and violence of war but the message between the lines is actually uite depressing the horrors were completely meaningless Stalin allegedly stated that The death of one man is a tragedy the death of millions is a statistic Behind the strategic arrows on maps and the euphemisms used by the powers that be there are real people that have to fulfill the grand promises of others Anyone talking about greatness manifest destiny or the greater good should be made aware of this book War is stupid

Growing up in a western style classroom everything I learned about my own country has been westernized I would open my history book excited to finally learn about Japan and all it would cover is the attack of Pearl Harbor and the atomic bomb dropping at Hiroshima I considered it lucky if Commodore Perry was mentioned So when my english teacher mentioned this book I was than excited to read it The book covered so much and captured so many different perspectives and experiences of the people who lived through WW2 The book doesn t sugarcoat anything and truly portrays the tragedy that came out of this war The graphic description of both young and old becoming a casualty to this war the repeating pattern of civilians placing so much hope in the military while the military manipulated them and the information they receive was truly tragic This book gave me context and it truly shows that the people of Japan didn t want to participate in the war they had to Each account left me deep in thought and I thoroughly enjoyed being able to understand Japan s history even Chapter 17 War Comes to Okinawa resonated me the most as it covered the events that happened where I currently live Reading about the Himeyuri students and knowing they were my age when they had to experience the Okinawan war was truly heartbreaking This book was both moving and eye opening for me it truly exceeded my expectation and I gained knowledge about WW2 in Japan than I thought I would I ve never really read these type of books but after reading this book I m hoping to start reading about history I recommend it to anyone interested in History or Japan but I highly encourage my fellow classmates or any students attending an international school in Japan to read it
