Publisher's Summary

War Without Mercy has been hailed by the New York Times as "one of the most original and important books to be written about the war between Japan and the United States." In this monumental history, professor John Dower reveals a hidden, explosive dimension of the Pacific War - race - while writing what John Toland has called "a landmark book...a powerful, moving, and evenhanded history that is sorely needed in both America and Japan."
Drawing on American and Japanese songs, slogans, cartoons, propaganda films, secret reports, and a wealth of other documents of the time, Dower opens up a whole new way of looking at that bitter struggle of four and a half decades ago and its ramifications in our lives today. As Edwin O. Reischauer, former ambassador to Japan, has pointed out, this book offers "a lesson that the postwar generations need most...with eloquence, crushing detail, and power."

This is the worst "history" book I've ever read! Classic liberal "all Americas fault" tale of utter fiction. In a nutshell, the misunderstood wonderful Japanese were forced to attack the evil Euro/Americans who responded with unfair brutality.
There, saved you wasting 20 bucks and several hours on this piece of crap. This book is a crime against real historians and I am returning it!
