by Wilfrid Fleisher, Fighting Forces Series, The Infantry Journal, Washington, D.C., June 1944, 194 pages. This is the story of the relations of the United States and Japan from the time Commodore Perry opened up the island empire to foreign intercourse down to the Japanese attack on Hawaii—the background of the United States' war with Japan. It is also the story of the United States' final diplomatic negotiations with Japan. The author spent 17 years in Japan and then as New York Herald Tribune correspondent at the State Department, and thus was in a position to observe closely developments in the critical period that preceded the war and was personally acquainted with all the participants in those negotiations. The author tries to show what sort of people we were fighting, what was the military mind that conceived those dreams of conquest in Asia and planned them over many years, what the were the strength of Japan's army and navy, and her economic position—the weakest link in her armor. He was not concerned with the strategy of the war itself, nor did he envisage the kind of peace to follow. A Merriam Press Military Archives PDF file. FREE
