Summary
Hoyt, a noted author and historian who specializes in Japan, China and the War in the Pacific, uses the personal diary of Vice Admiral Matome Ugaki to document the eventual destruction of the Japanese Navy at the hands of Allied forces throughout World War II. The author begins by detailing Ugaki's role in the preparation and planning of the attack on Pearl Harbor, and then provides this officer's insights into such battles as Midway and Guadalcanal. Military historians will appreciate this insider's perspective into the collapse of the Japanese military and its eventual surrender, which culminates in Ugaki's final kamikaze mission against the wishes of Emperor Hirohito.
