This acclaimed work is an extraordinary collection of letters written by a wide cross-section of Japanese citizens to one of Japan's leading newspapers, expressing their personal reminiscences and opinions of the Pacific war. "SENSO" provides the general reader and the specialist with moving, disturbing, startling insights on a subject deliberately swept under the rug, both by Japan's citizenry and its government. It is an invaluable index of Japanese public opinion about the war.

Review quote

"In 1986 and 1987 the Asahi Shimbun solicited reminiscences of the war from its readers. The newspaper received over 4,000 letters. The Gibney-Cary translation of a selection has attained the status of a classic. They reveal many things, not least that the Japanese know full well what they did during the war, whether their politicians want to acknowledge it or not." - Chalmers Johnson, author of MITI and the Japanese Miracle"
