Synopsis : This magnificent Pulitzer Prize-winning history, told primarily from the Japanese viewpoint, traces the dramatic fortunes of the Empire of the Sun from the invasion of Manchuria to the dropping of the atomic bombs, demolishing many myths surrounding this catastrophic conflict. Why did the dawn attack on Pearl Harbor occur? Was was inevitable? Was the Emperor a puppet or a warmonger? And, finally, what inspired the barbaric actions of those who fought, and who speak here of the unspeakable - murder, cannibalism and desertion?

Quatrième de couverture:
?[It] is quite possibly the most readable, yet informative account of the Pacific war.? ? Chicago Sun-Times
?Unbelievably rich . . . readable and exciting . . . The best parts of [Toland?s] book are not the battle scenes but the intimate view he gives of the highest reaches of Tokyo politics.? ? Newsweek
?Similar in scope to William Shirer?s The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich. Toland?s book is fresh and dramatic throughout. The Rising Sun is not only a blood-and-guts action story, it also presents for the first time a great deal of fresh information.? ? Chicago Sun-Times
