Description

Yamamoto is an exhaustively researched and compelling biography of the Japanese Naval genius and war hero Isoroku Yamamoto, the Architect of the Pacific War. Drawing on a wealth of untapped Japanese sources, historian Edwin P. Hoyt demonstrates both his flair for dramatic battle accounts and his penetrating eye for personal and political motivation. He offers a thorough and engaging portrait of Admiral Yamamoto and, from that vantage point, provides a revealing new view of the events of World War II. Yamamoto details his life from his youth in Nagaoka and his early military successes, to the dynamic leader's orchestration of the infamous sneak attack on Pearl Harbor, his subsequent naval victories, and his eventual assassination by American fighter planes in the Solomon Islands at the order of President Roosevelt himself.show more
