Description: This sweeping narrative recounts the end of the Pacific war through the eyes of both the Americans and the Japanese. It opens with a vivid, horrifying portrait of the catastrophic fire raids on Tokyo in March of '45, and ends with the anguished vigil of American and Japanese leaders, waiting to learn if Japan's armed forces will obey the Emperor's order.

The backbone of the narrative is the chronology of the air campaign over Japan, as the 20th Air Force inflicts catastrophic damage on urban areas, industry and civilian morale. Concurrent with this devestating chronicle, the reader learns of Japanese and Allied strategy; American designs for an invasion of the home islands, and the Japanese fanatical defense; Allied attitudes and initiatives concerning Soviet participation in the war (and, of course, the devestating Soviet intervention in Manchuria); the impact of the sea blockade and mining campaign, and the use of the atomic bomb.
