9780007219810: Nemesis: The Battle for Japan, 1944-45

A companion volume to his bestselling ‘Armageddon’, Max Hastings’ account of the battle for Japan is a masterful military history.

Featuring the most remarkable cast of commanders the world has ever seen, the dramatic battle for Japan of 1944–45 was acted out across the vast stage of Asia: Imphal and Kohima, Leyte Gulf and Iwo Jima, Okinawa and the Soviet assault on Manchuria.

In this gripping narrative, Max Hastings weaves together the complex strands of an epic war, exploring the military tactics behind some of the most triumphant and most horrific scenes of the twentieth century. The result is a masterpiece that balances the story of command decisions, rivalries and follies with the experiences of soldiers, sailors and airmen of all sides as only Max Hastings can.

Recensione:

‘A monumental achievement…compassionate but unsparing in its judgements.’ Sunday Times

‘An outstandingly gripping and authoritative account of the battle for Japan, and a monument to human bravery and savagery.’ Daily Telegraph

‘Absolutely excellent.’ John Simpson, Observer

‘Magisterial…it is truly cathartic to reach the end of the Second World War in Hastings’s company.’ The Times

‘Brilliantly though Hastings lays out the strategic context, his real talent lies in his account of the “terrible human experience” that it involved…This is a book for anyone who wants to understand what happened in half the world during one of the bloodiest periods of the blood-soaked 20th century.’ Spectator

‘Spectacular…Hastings makes important points about the war in the East that have been all too rarely heard…excellent…compelling…searingly powerful.’ Sunday Telegraph

‘As Hastings brilliantly describes, conditions for fighting men on both sides were appalling…the fire-bombing of Tokyo and the decision to drop the atomic bombs were influenced by the urge to 'get this business over with', but the argument, as Hastings explains so well with his usual exemplary judgement, is far more complex.’ Financial Times

L'autore:

Max Hastings studied at Charterhouse and Oxford and later became a foreign correspondent, reporting from more than sixty countries and eleven wars for newspapers and the BBC. He has won many awards for both his journalism and his bestselling books. After ten years as editor and then editor-in-chief of the Daily Telegraph, he spent six years as editor of the Evening Standard. A Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature, he was knighted in 2002. He lives in Berkshire.
