From the Back Cover:

Praise for Soldiers of the Sun

"This book ought to be read as a necessary prelude to the ill-informed and uncultured debate that rages in the United States. The lessons of history, and of what happens when a thwarted nation finds itself encircled, are there to be learned."

-- Newsday

"A fine history that analyzes the military legacy of the Imperial Japanese Army and assesses moral responsibility for its excesses."

-- Kirkus Reviews
