Hirohito: Behind the Myth

Edward Behr, Author Vintage Books USA $14.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-679-73171-9
``Armed with new evidence, Behr convincingly argues that Hirohito, far from being an innocent tool of the Japanese military, actually sanctioned military expansionism in the 1930s; did little to reverse a tendency toward battlefield confrontation with the U.S.; was fully informed of preparations for the attack on Pearl Harbor; and, in fact, presided over the war to the end,'' argued PW.
