Japan’s Longest Day by The Pacific War Research Society [in AsianWeek]

Japan's Longest DayFirst trade paperback release that captures the 24 hours leading up to noon on August 15, 1945, the fateful day that the Japanese Emperor announced the country’s defeat in World War II. That moment was a turning point for formation of the modern Japanese psyche, marked by hearing for the very first time, the human voice of their emperor who was believed to have been divine.
