349 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0080374409 B&w photographs. "(T)he incredible story of Mitsuo Fuchida, the career naval aviator who not only led the air attack on Pearl Harbor, but participated in most of the fierces t battles of the Pacific. One of the very few second-echelon Japanese officers to serve through the entire war (including Midway, the Marianas Turkey Shoot, and Leyte Gulf), Fuchida narrowly escaped death in a jungle crash, was in Hiroshima the d a y before and the day after the atomic bombing, played a dramatic role in squelching a coup d'etat, and was even aboard the 'Missouri' at the surrender ceremonies. Fuchida's presence in the Pearl Harbor strike force's command center during the fa te fu l debate about whether to launch a third wave and his attendance at Emperor Hirohito's post-attack briefing shed new light on some of the enduring controversies of the war, including Hirohito's role. In his dozens of conversations with Go r don Pr ang e, (he) also drew a memorable portrait of his mentor, the great Admiral Yamamoto, and his account of the Tokyo war crimes trials and the Occupation vividly evokes the somber atmosphere of a defeated nation." A few tiny ink marks on to p of t ext bloc k and on rear pastedown, light wrinkling at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has been price-clipped, has one small edge tear, minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds. Very Good/Very Good
